'The Lone Ranger': First Look

Walt Disney Studios has released the first image from the on-again, off-again (but now back on again) Western adventure The Lone Ranger. In the pic, Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) casts a sidelong glance at Texas Ranger John Reid (Armie Hammer).

The Lone Ranger is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, directed by Gore Verbinski and written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, the same team behind the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. It promises to be a revisionist take on the classic Lone Ranger story as the unlikely duo joins forces to fight greed and corruption.

Given the parties involved, expect an exciting and humorous action-adventure with plenty of explosions and a story that's difficult to follow.

The Lone Ranger will be Disney's summer tentpole next year, with a U.S. release date of May 31, 2013.
