Disney Cancels Johnny Depp Movie

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: "The Lone Ranger," the epic, Disney-based retelling of the classic western television show has had its production shut down. The news comes as a surprise given the success of the film's three big names, star Johnny Depp, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and filmmaker Gore Verbinski. The trio teamed for the wildly successful first three films of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series, which together grossed over $2.5 billion. As reports: "This becomes the second major Western-themed project to bite the dust, after Universal halted a mammoth adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower. And is it coincidence that The Lone Ranger halted right after another Western, Cowboys & Aliens, proved a pricey disappointment for DreamWorks and Universal?" Depp was cast as Tonto, the Native American companion to the title character, portrayed by Armie Hammer. But in this retelling, the masked man's traditional sidekick would assume the central role. What do you think? Is Disney justified in axing the potential Johnny Depp franchise? Or does a Lone Ranger movie not sound like a good idea, regardless of the budget?
