According to an article I found on BBC.com, the newest movie adaptation of the Lone Ranger has been halted in pre-production due to cost concerns. At $250 million, it’s an expensive venture and no doubt fed by Johnny Depp being cast as Tonto.
I have a solution: Dump Depp
He’s a silly, over-rated actor who drives up the cost of any production. And he’s not Native American enough in my opinion anyway. Let’s get a real Native American to play the role and bring some dignity to the movie.
