Johnny Depp has been talking up his big-screen, revisionist spin on The Lone Ranger for quite some time, with the movie being told from Tonto's point of view – and now we're finally getting a first look!
Tonto is a spirit warrior on a personal quest who joins forces in a fight for justice with John Reid (The Social Network and J. Edgar star Armie Hammer), a lawman who has become a masked avenger.
The highly anticipated project reunites Depp with his Oscar-winning Rango and Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski and super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter also star.
Set for release May 31, 2013, The Lone Ranger is shooting on location in New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado.
