Get another look at Johnny Depp as Tonto in The Lone Ranger

Apr. 13, 2012by:

When the look for the new Tonto in THE LONE RANGER was revealed, I was a little taken back. I was used to the stripped down appearance. Growing up, I was surrounded by pieces and parts of the culture. The face paint I saw was usually very subtle. I thought maybe Johnny Depp's Tonto was supposed to be a little quirky. As you can tell, I am not an authority on the subject.

Another pic of Depp in costume has surfaced. In this photo, he is taking time to pose on set with Dr. Gayle Dine'Chacon, Surgeon General of the Navajo Nation.

Check it out below.

Extra Tidbit: How do you guys think this movie is going to turn out? Pretty good? Was it even a good idea to begin with?

budget

just gotta say this though, I kind of hope this movie bombs just to show the studio heads how IDIOTIC they are with their money. Seriously? There's no way this movie should cost more than $80 mil

After Rango I have a lot of trust in these guys. I think the striking look of Depp as Tonto could be really interesting.

Depp just doesn't pass up any chance of coating his face with weird makeup I presume... :P

This film is the one I'm waiting for a trailer to see how it turns out....The director is great, the actors are ofcourse my favorite, their previous collaborations are awesome (POTC 1-2-3, Rango), its just the HUMONGOUS budget for a supposed western is what making me nervous. Lets just wait and see...

I had similar thoughts. The budget is just unreasonable. I read that the script has multiple action scenes and a supernatural bent that required massive CGI. It doesn't make any sense to me to give a property like this a budget of 180 million, which I think was the original. That is an insane amount of money.

As fas as I know the original budget was 235M, not 180M...And after it temporarily shutdown because of budgetary concerns, they cut down the cost to 215M (which is still totally unbelievable!!). Sorry I don't have any links, read it on earlier JoBlo news. There maybe a skinwalker type angle based on Indian mythology, and a train scene which will be the biggest train action sequence ever filmed. I dunno, all of this just doesn't translate to me as a CLASSIC WESTERN film, you know?

I feel like I've seen everything Depp has to offer now. Not really a criticism, it has been some classic stuff, but I just can't get excited for another Depp role where he is playing another outlandish character. That goes for this and Dark Shadows. I love the guy, but I would be more excited to see him take on something more realistic like Public Enemies.

I really miss his Donnie Brasco type serious characters! I mean, the first time he was Jack Sparrow it was super fun, even the 2nd or 3rd time, maybe, but now this is just getting a bit...repetitive. Although to be fair, his recent non-weird turns in The Tourist or Rum Diary are also totally forgettable. I think he just isn't trying anymore. Depp has all the capabilities, he only needs to find his edge again. Maybe a couple of indie films like in the 90s can turn that around? Sure hope so.

lol I'll wait before I judge it

but I'm honestly not that interested in the movie at all, I think I'll wait til video unless the trailer magically blows me away.

But yeah, Depp sure does love putting makeup on... I mean seriously, the ratio of movies he's done with a few tons of makeup on compared to just his normal face is astounding... well, at least it seems like it. damn!

How ironic that this is taken from "Badass Digest," because I can't think of anything less badass than this.

Looks like a combination of every quirky charater he has ever played, lil Sparrow Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, Mad Hatter rolled into one.
