Speaking about the film's budget we must say that Disney eventually reached a compromise regarding the film's budget and have already set a date to start filming, reports Deadline.
After negotiations, the amount by which the film will be performed stayed at 215 million dollars, not much less than the initial 250 million. "The budget included a reduction in the number of new financial arrangements with production team and actors, but also a reassessment of the long period of expected production," the studio said in a statement.
Johnny Depp, has expressed a wish to work only with Verbinski on this project, this being the main factor in the compromise made by Disney, preferring to make a generous amount than to lose the cooperation of the two. Filming of The Lone Ranger will begin early 2012, the film with a very good release date, taking into account the preference of Verbinski for special effects.
Release date for The Lone Ranger new movie was set for 21 December 2012. Today we were informed that the new release date is 31 May 2013 and filming start date is 13 February 2012. Why this happens? "The Lone Ranger" having release date for 21 December 2012 compete at the box office in North America at the end of 2012 with the fantasy adventure "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (director Peter Jackson), with thriller "Hunter Killer" (director Philip Noyce) and with drama adventure "Life of Pi" (director Ang Lee).
It seems that Johnny Depp and film producer Jerry Bruckheimer will continue to work together after Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. They will resume an affair with the cowboy, which began as a series of radio plays, then became a popular television series and inspired several movies.
Johnny Depp will play the role of Tonto in the new video feature film "The Lone Ranger" and is convinced that this remake will give the opportunity to greet them and to honor Native Americans. Tonto is a Native American hero, and Depp decided to personify it as natural and correct.
"I always felt bad that Native Americans have been interpreted in Hollywood movies, over time. This is a real opportunity for me to send a greeting. Tonto is a very important secondary character, a friend of main character in all series Lone Ranger. This new movie will have a very different approach on the partnership between Tonto and the main character. A fun approach ... I think it will come out better when we have the opportunity to put the project on its feet. Until now we have the script, which is very good, really funny" said Johnny Depp for EW.com.
In the TV series "The Lone Ranger" from 1949-1957, Tonto was played by Jay Silverheels and Clayton Moore was The Lone Ranger. In 2003, in a television western, Nathaniel Arcand was Tonto and The Lone Ranger was played by Chad Michael Murray. In 1981, the western directed by William A. Fraker, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, Tonto was played by Michael Horse, and The Lone Ranger Klinton Spilsbury, Christopher Lloyd was also part of the cast with another role, that of Major Cavendish. So it is certain that Johnny Depp's Tonto will bring notoriety.
