the lone ranger Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in 'The Lone Ranger': first look“The Lone Ranger” has been in development for years, but now we’re finally getting our first look at Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as Tonto. The film is directed by  Gore Verbinski and is currently filming in New Mexico. Also starring are William Fichtner, Tom Wilkenson, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham-Carter (well, of course).

Hammer looks just about perfect as the Lone Ranger, in this picture tweeted by producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Depp, however, looks a bit like Jack Sparrow. A little overdone, you know what we mean? We really have no idea where Verbinski is going as far as style, but we’re willing to wait and see.

We’re pretty excited about this film. Are you guys looking forward to it? What do you think of the first shot? Were you fans of the original show? Let us know your thoughts below.
