What’s in the hopper?….the Lone Ranger!
I was a big fan of the 1950s Lone Ranger TV series starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels. Every Saturday it was on I didn’t miss it. The last attempt at a big screen film of the Lone Ranger was in the 1981 movie, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, which was a huge disaster. I remember reading about Johnny Depp being cast as Tonto and just rolling my eyes thinking what a huge mistake that was and further thinking that Hollywood must really want to see another Lone Ranger movie fail.
However, seeing the above picture, which is shocking because it is an authentic depiction of a native American and not the usual sanitized Hollywood version, I began to have higher hopes for this movie. Now after seeing the trailer which was released yesterday, my enthusiasm and hopes for this film has increased. Other than Johnny Depp, the movie stars, Armmie Hammer as the Lone Ranger and Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Wilkerson. Sounds like a great cast and the movie does look good! My expectations are up for this one!
The movie hits theaters on May 31, 2013.
