The Lone Ranger is saddling up for a summer 2013 release, and a batch of new images from the western TV adap have been unveiled.
These new snaps come in addition to the first official image, which was unveiled by producer Jerry Bruckheimer earlier this year.
Armie Hammer plays the straight-shooting title character, but it’s Johnny Depp who’s expected to pinch scenes as Native American sidekick Tonto.
The new images (via USA Today) give away no plot specifics, but do at least promise an incredible-looking epic. Dust flies, horses gallop, and trains chug in what could be the prettiest western since The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford.
Director Gore Verbinski (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Rango) describes TLR as a “dysfunctional buddy movie.”
Check out the images in full below:
Fresh reports suggest that the budget has gone as high as $250m as the shooting totals more than 140 days. Let’s hope the final product warrants the effort.
We’ll find out when The Lone Ranger opens in the UK on 9 August 2012.
