With Mike Newell in talks to direct Jerry Bruckheimer’s new take on The Lone Ranger, we thought it was high time to start fantasy casting the masked hero.
But why should you care about The Lone Ranger?
Well, Johnny Depp’s playing Native American sidekick Tonto. And the last Bruckheimer produced Disney flick to feature Depp was Pirates Of The Caribbean.
But The Lone Ranger could be better than Pirates, because the one thing that franchise didn't have was a decent lead (sorry Orlando).
So this is Jerry's opportunity to put right what once went wrong. If he can convince anyone to sign up for it, that is...
1. The Big Name
Hi Ho! He's the Cary Grant of our generaton. Jerry should be showering him with gifts of pigs and left-wing political biopics to convince him to take part.
Hi No! He'd rather hop onto the back of a motorbike than on the back of a franchise horse these days. We all remember what happened the last time he wore a mask. Mainly because he won't shut up about it.
He didn't enjoy the experience, in case you haven't already heard.
Sadly, we reckon if Bruckheimer came to Clooney's front door with a contract, George would pelt him with basketballs until he went away.
