According to Deadline, it looks like Gore Verbinski may be reteaming with his Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp for The Lone Ranger remake. Verbinski, who in my opinion has been very hit and miss, is in talks to direct The Lone Ranger which is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The Disney film will star Depp as The Lone Ranger’s Native Amercian sidekick, Tonto. The Lone Ranger is expected to start filming next year with a release date sometime in 2012.
Verbinski next film, Rango about a chameleon with an identity crisis, is his first foray into the animation field and also stars Johnny Depp as the voice of titular character. And from the trailer it looks like Rango could be a hit! Rango hits theaters March 4, 2011.
