Re: hi ho Silver, The Lone Ranger rides on....

I get the feeling that Depp told Disney that he would only do a Pirates 5 if Disney made Lone Ranger.

Jerry Bruckheimer was able to bring the budget down to 215 million. That's not quite as ridiculous when compared to the original 260 millon. It is amazing that this movies costs so much more than the first Pirates of the Caribbean.

Jerry Bruckheimer talks the cuts and the release date. The train scene remains intact, supernatural coyotes (were-coyotes?) have been cut.

If not supernatural coyotes i'm sure the werewolves will still make it.

For those that don't know.

"It was going to be a Tonto show mainly. Tonto as the top dog and more dominant than the Lone Ranger. Tonto and the Indian spirits like Obi Wan Kenobi and the force. The driving engine was going to be Native American occult aspects worked in with werewolves and special effects. But flavored with doses of Native American spirituality in a serious way.

Re: hi ho Silver, The Lone Ranger rides on....

ugh. The Lone Ranger doesn't need supernatural aspects. i'm fine with Tonto taking center stage but don't add things that don't belong.

If he wanted to throw his weight around, he could have refused to take a pay cut. I don't think he played hardball - he just organized a huge concession for Disney in the pay cuts, which is in itself great PR for the movie - greedy Hollywood bastards taking pay cuts to get a movie made? Isn't that one of the Seven Signs of the Apocalypse? That must be one great script!

And now Disney knows that Depp sort of owes them, and he'd be less likely to kick up a fuss in future negotiations. If the movie tanks, then he really owes them. If the movie is a success, then Disney makes money. It's a no-lose for Disney!

Hey, my guess about The Lone Ranger = Luke and Tonto = Obi-Wan was right on the money! And this actually sounds like a pretty good idea. For Native American mysticism to be introduced into the story is enough justification for werewolves and other supernatural critters. It isn't a subject that has been done to death. This could be good.

I hope they treat things fairly seriously and don't turn it into a POTC style farce. Humor is good, farce not so much.

A quarter of a billion dollars for a Lone Ranger movie is ridiculous. Especially if we don't get supernatural coyotes.

Gore Verbinski talks (rather vaguely) about TLR:

CS: I was kind of surprised when I learned you were doing "The Lone Ranger" because you'd think you got doing a Western out of your system with this, but I guess it just made you want to do another Western really soon. Was that your thinking when you took that or did you just like the character?
Verbinski:
Yeah, those things were set in motion a long time ago. I'd worked on that script for about 18 months with Justin Haythe. So it's different. It's a Western, but it's a completely different narrative and I just feel like I've got my hands on the stirring wheel, finally, in terms of having a story that I really... I think you have to be able to answer the question, "Why must you tell this story?" Otherwise, you're going to be halfway through a movie and want to slit your wrists.

That's not gonna stop the Hollywood remake machine! Johnny Depp seems determined to remake every TV show in existence. He's got Dark Shadows and maybe The Night Stalker underway too.

But only about 30 years since the last movie.

I better be, that's my bf's most favoritest show ever. He won't stop yakking about it even now, and unlike me, he actually believes it was excellent for the whole run and not just the first season.

Prison Break alums are on a roll! Robert Knepper has been cast as...wait for it...a cult leader/serial killer! Well there's a stretch. And it's on the CW, this I gotta see. (Since T-Bag is my bf's favorite character, now he has to watch a show aimed at 14 year old girls, ha!)

I like all your suggestions, Captaindemotion, but here's the one that must happen: Johnny Depp as Weyoun in DS9: The Movie!

Actually, in a few years, he might make a decent Kolchak. I just hope they keep it in the 70s.
