Armie Hammer could saddle up with Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger

Now that Ryan Gosling is out, Armie Hammer is in.

Hammer is in early talks to star in the title role of Disney's THE LONE RANGER, which is being helmed by Gore Verbinski. Johnny Depp will play his trusted sidekick, Tonto.

Justin Haythe (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD) wrote the script and Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.

We don't have any real details beyond that. This project has been trying to get off the ground for sometime now. Depp originally wanted someone like George Clooney or Brad Pitt as the leading man. As I mentioned before, Ryan Gosling was rumored to star but apparently all the talk was premature. Also, Gosling is about to start working on the reboot of LOGAN'S RUN.

Extra Tidbit: Do you guys care about this movie? Could be interesting, but it's been taking forever.

I'm all in for this film Niki! I still think Ben Affleck would make a gr8 Lone Ranger,though maybe a little too obvious? A few other actors I'd like to see tapped for the part would be Sharlto Copley(w/o the accent of course) Bradley Cooper - Woody Harrelson - Jason Bateman and if they're going for a lil' comic relief in the part? SNL rising star Jason Sudeikis.

I'd rather have Hammer than Clooney or Pitt, they would probably do that same old slightly goofy leading man character they mostly do, yet again. Hammer could work, but I have the feeling that Tudyk, who has a hell of a range and can be funny as hell, would be a blast bouncing of Depp. Plus Tudyk's from Texas, good place for a cowboy to be from.
