Hey-ho, kiddos. I'm crawling out of my cave because I just learned that Disney is doing a big screen remake of The Lone Ranger. Yep. And it definitely looks like a spoof. The Ranger, guy in the white hat in the above picture, is played by Armie Hammer. And do you recognize that fella wearing the paint on his face and the dead crow (or is it a blackbird?) on his head? It's Johnny Depp as Tonto. Good grief, kimosabe.
Well, I have to say, this looks nothing like the Lone Ranger dudes I used to watch in glorious black and white on tv. But, hey, I'm all up for anything that will get the young folks interested in westerns and the old code of the west. Wonder how bad they skew that up.
If you're interested, you can find the pic and the article on Access Hollywood, which is where I found it.
Happy trails, muchachos!
