Lone Ranger is an upcoming action film by director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The film is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
It will be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. Filming started early in March 2012. The release date is set for May 31, 2013.
Not much is known about the story other than what director Gore Verbinksi told MTV News about the film being focused around Tonto rather than the Lone Ranger. Verbinski said, "You've heard the Lone Ranger's story; you just haven't heard it told from this guy, and he was there."  Along the same lines (and in the same article), Depp talks about Tonto, "I like the character. I think I have interesting plans for the character, and I think the film itself could be entertaining and very funny, but also I like the idea of having the opportunity to make fun of the idea of the Indian as a sidekick — which has always been [the case] throughout the history of Hollywood. The Native American has always been a second-class, third-class, fourth-class, fifth-class citizen, and I don't see Tonto that way at all. So it's an opportunity for me to salute Native Americans."
