I See Why

>> Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Recent news is that Disney pulled the plug on thier movie adaptation of The Lone Ranger.
Why?
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.

Why even call it The Lone Ranger?

I'm constantly stunned by the gall of screenwriters these days.
Composers are waxing strong.
Screenwriters are dying off.

Oh thank you LORD. Serious, Depp as Tonto who is a werewolf; and Disney can't think of an original movie idea so it must butcher something from the past, a classic of the entertainment world none the less... we've reached the point of desperation and no mistake.

I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
