After months of talk, The Lone Ranger is finally shooting in the New Mexico desert. Thanks to producer Jerry Bruckheimer, we have our first look at Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer as Tonto and the titular character, respectively.
Could Hammer not have been more perfectly cast? And doesn’t the make-up and crow headdress fit Depp? The film is scheduled to be released May 31, 2013 and it also stars Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper, William Fichtner, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.
The story will be told through Tonto’s point of view, as he recalls the adventures that turned a lawman into a legend.
