    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:

    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! :p

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

    He could be Starsky and Hutch - play both roles, just change his wig.

    Actually, that guy who plays Shane on Walking Dead would make a great Starsky-- he could play opposite him.

    Well if we're going to be all realistic and stuff, Shane can be Starsky and for Hutch...Mike Vogel?

    Sssh! We're all trying to forget that movie.

    And then, of course, there was that teen version that aired on the CW a few years ago. The one where the Lone Ranger ended up in an Old West hot tub with Tonto's hot sister.

    (I swear to God, I'm not making that up!)

    Pet peeve:

    It's not "Hi ho, Silver". It's "Hi-yo, Silver".

    It was a pilot for a "Young Lone Ranger" series starring one of the guys from SUPERNATURAL as the Ranger (before he was cast in SUPERNATURAL, natch). As far as I know, it aired once on the CW and did not go to series.

    And, to be fair, the hot tub scene was a dream sequence, but Tonto still had a hot Native American sister . . . .
