First look at Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger

Talk about drama behind the scenes of a movie.  The Lone Ranger project was announced by Disney over a year ago.  This is of course the remake to the 1930's TV show.  Almost from the beginning, Johnny Depp was attached to star and Gore Verbinski was set to direct.  The two worked on the 'Pirates' movies in the past.  The movie was then canceled due to a ridiculous budget.  After everyone involved was willing to take a 20% pay cut, the movie was back on track.

Armie Hammer was cast as the Lone Ranger; Johnny Depp will play Tonto and William Fichtner will play the villain.  Filming has begun, and this is the first official image.  What do you think?  I know it's not much to base the whole movie on, but it's something.  I love what they did with Depp's make up and costume, and Hammer's looks good as well.  Can't wait to see more from the movie.
