There was a time, believe it or not, where nobody knew what The Lone Ranger and Tonto looked like, as the series began as a radio show.
Well now, they look like Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp (21 Jump Street). See for yourself in two new The Lone Ranger character posters:
Hammer stars as John Reid, a.k.a. the Lone Ranger in the new adaptation, which acts as an origin story. Left for dead in the desert, the Texas Ranger is found by the Native American Tonto, and transforms himself into a vigilante of justice.
William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper, Mason Cook, Ruth Wilson, Helena Bonham Carter, and James Badge Dale (Iron Man 3) also star.
Gore Verbinski directs the film, which will premiere July 3. Watch The Lone Ranger trailer for more.
