First look at Hammer and Depp as the Lone Ranger & Tonto

March 8th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted the first image from the now in production Lone Ranger movie earlier… you know the one. It was filming, wasn’t, was, has CGI werewolves, hadn’t etc etc…

Well now it seems it is already filming as our first glimpse of Arnie Hammer and Johnny Depp as the Lone Ranger and Tonto testifies. The movie is being directed by Pirates of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski in Mexico and will also star Tom Wilkinson, Helena Bonham Carter and Barry Pepper.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
