Not only did they pair for the Pirates trilogy, director Gore Verbinski recently took Johnny Depp on a wild ride out west for Rango — and they are set to do it all over again for The Lone Ranger, but in live-action this time around. We’ve got the first teaser trailer today for the massive budget Disney blockbuster, and it certainly shows off its production value.
We’ve heard quite a bit about the big train setpieces and this tease seems to focus more on that than anything Depp-related. I do like the starker style Verbinski is aiming at with this one, so hopefully he can bring some of that Rango magic back.

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
The Lone Ranger hits July 3rd, 2013.

These […]
