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.
