The Lone Ranger Photos: Johnny Depp Embraces Navajo Nation

by at . Comments

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are busy in New Mexico filming their Disney film The Lone Ranger. With Hammer as the title character and Depp as his faithful sidekick Tonto, they had us at go. Toss in Depp’s determination to bring dignity to the Native American character that he felt was lost in the original, and we believe they are on to something truly special. The actor has said he hopes to “take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans, not only in The Lone Ranger, but the way Indians were treated throughout the history of cinema, and turn it on its head.”
