The masked avenger of the old west gets a Jack Sparrow upgrade.

It was announced quite sometime back that Jerry Bruckheimer was developing a live action Lone Ranger movie with Johnny Depp and the writers of Pirates of The Caribbean.

There were loads of rumors of George Clooney and Johnny Depp wanting to be part of the film. Bruckheimer has finally confirmed that Johnny Depp will be part of the film. The Ranger should be played by George Clooney once he is free.

There will be adherence to the western sort of feel to the movie. There will also be some supernatural elements that will be part of the film. I think with George Clooney in tow will just be a perfect film with an unlikely casting.
