Director Jerry Bruckheimer is out and about doing press for his next movie Confessions of a Shopaholic, but while he's at it, he's chatting a bit about upcoming projects, like The Lone Ranger. Bruckheimer confirms that the script is all set and Johnny Depp has signed on to play Tonto — but who should play the Lone Ranger himself? Who should portray the masked ranger, trotting about on his trusty horse, Silver? In an interview Bruckheimer says he thinks viewers should suggest the next Lone Ranger.
Here we've got an actual director putting forth a recast challenge! My first thought is George Clooney, though that may partially be because I think Clooney and Depp would make for a ridiculously beautiful and funny duo in this story. What do you think?
