Recent news is that Disney pulled the plug on thier movie adaptation of The Lone Ranger.
I'll give you a couple of good reasons.
The first reason was because of the budget, which was reaching as high as $250 million!
But that's not all that made the company hesitant to continue.
Johnny Depp was going to play Tonto (who was going to be the main character despite the title "The Lone Ranger").
And he was going to be a werewolf.
That's right, a werewolf.
The movie was planned to be an "Indian-spiruality werewolf film." (The CGI for that probably explains the budget.)
It was going to have tons of effects, with Tonto as a werewolf ripping people to shreds...
So, I can see why they pulled the plug on this.
I mean, a Lone Ranger movie starring Tonto as a werewolf?
I don't even know why they bought the script.
