The Lone Ranger Re-make 2013

I was not aware that there's going to be a Lone Ranger Re-make in the making until I saw a picture with Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp playing his sidekick Tonto.  The film will be under Disney films and will be directed by Jerry Bruckheimer.  Tentative release date will be on May 2013.

I grew up watching The Lone Ranger TV series.  They were actually re-runs already since the airing of which was from 1949 to 1957 with Clayton Moore playing the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto

The Lone Ranger's catchphrase was "Hi-yo, Silver! Away!" which he would say every time he galloped away with his white horse Silver.  Tonto referred to the Lone Ranger as "Ke-mo sah-bee" which means "trusty scout" or "trusted friend.  Other than these other Lone Ranger trademarks would be the silver bullets that he used and the William Tell Overture which became indelibly marked in the memories of the millions who came of age watching the TV series.  Believe it or not but The Lone Ranger re-runs were still being transmitted as of August 2010, sixty-one years after their initial broadcast.

I'm sure many are as curious as I am as to how Johnny Depp will play the role of Tonto.    Based on that head dress he's wearing I'm sure we'll all be in for a big surprise!
