UPDATED: Could Ryan Gosling star alongside Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger? Quick answer: No

04.19.2011

UPDATE: EW spoke with Gosling's rep who confirmed that the actor will not be starring in THE LONE RANGER.

This would certainly be a great pairing, if the timing is right...

Ryan Gosling is in early talks to star in Disney's THE LONE RANGER with Johnny Depp. If Gosling signs on he would be The Lone Ranger himself with Depp in the role of Tonto.

Sadly, Gosling's schedule may not permit him to do the project. The actor is soon to be busy with the LOGAN'S RUN remake which will begin shooting in the fall. I really hope that he finds time to do this.

The film is being helmed by Gore Verbinski and Justin Haythe (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD) has written the script.

At one point, Depp mentioned George Clooney and Brad Pitt to possibly fight alongside him. While I really like both Pitt and Clooney, I'd like to see Gosling in this one.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think Gosling is a good choice? Or would you rather have Pitt or Clooney?

I propose that if Gosling can't do it. Lets get a reteaming of Dicaprio and Depp. They need to do another movie together.

Now, if they take the road that was opened up to them in the recent comic reboot, Gosling is just about perfect. However, the one person I see being absolutely perfect for this film as John Reid is Nathan Fillion. Any way you cut it, Fillion has everything it takes for this role.

Cant wait to see Gosling in Drive. Would love to see him do this but then again any of the actors names above would be amazing in this film.

Yeah I'm up for a new Lone Ranger, as long as they don't use it as an opportunity to slam America.

After Rango this is sounding a lot more interesting, specially if Gosling joins up. Please not Pitt or Clooney for this one. Alan Tudyk could be a great fit also, he really deserves more exposure.

Gosling would be great, depending on if this is campy or not. If his schedule doesn't permit, Jim Caviezel - my Dark Tower pick - should be available.

Why not Seth Rogan as The Lone Ranger? This reboot smells more like Green Hornet than anything else.

I'm down for Gosling in this. Pitt or Clooney just don't seem like they'd fit in this role.
