Here is a fantastic piece the LA Times recently posted about their visit to the Lone Ranger set from last May.
Johnny Depp was the picture of breezy relaxation as he walked bare-chested across the “Lone Ranger” film set in the high desert of New Mexico last May — despite the punishing midday glare and the pelting sand from a brewing windstorm.
“At the very least, I’m one of the lucky ones, since I don’t have to wear a shirt,” said Depp, who plays a reimagined version of Tonto that defies the standard sidekick expectations in the film that arrives in theaters on July 3 as the most expensive Hollywood western ever made. “Tonto is the smart one when it comes to keeping cool,” Depp added.
By any measure, Tonto is far more wily than John Reid, the by-the-book lawman who has a masked destiny as the film’s title character awaiting him on the dusty frontier. Reid is played by Armie Hammer, the 6-foot-5 actor best known for his roles as the embroiled Winklevoss twins in “The Social Network” and the FBI chief’s dapper right-hand man in Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar.”
The garrulous Hammer says he marvels at Depp’s talent and, fresh from a scuffle scene with his costar, laughed out loud when asked whether there were any parallels between the pair’s relationship on-screen and off.
“It’s very similar to our characters, because we are stuck together by fate,” Hammer said, squinting through sweat and the pale dust that coated the entire set. “We are less like our characters in that we’re just having a great time together.”
The two look like they’re having fun while filming a tussle that leaves Hammer’s character dazed and flat on his back in the scrub while Depp’s Tonto marches off into the desert beneath the stuffed crow that he wears atop his head like a winged, ebony crown. As Depp shook his head with amused admiration, his young costar moaned from the desert floor. “I think,” Hammer said, “I did something to my cortex.”
No photos yet from today’s parade, but here’s a video of Armie and Elizabeth on San Antonio Living today. Since there’s no option to turn off autoplay, just hit the link below to watch the full video!
Full steam ahead on the Lone Ranger promo train! Here’s our first interview, of the many to come, with Armie. Here, he chats with the Wall Street Journal.
It seems like this film is a little old school, in terms of Westerns.
The writing in this script specifically was what really spoke to me, because Justin Haythe wrote the script. Justin Haythe is one of the best writers that I’m convinced is out there. So the movie has a strong sense of heart and it’s very deep, but then at the same time, Gore [Verbinski] is able to take a movie that is both large in scale and serious, and put these tiny moments of levity in there. For example, we’re going to throw this massive train off this cliff and it’s going to blow up, and I want you two to look at each other like, “Uh oh.” It takes it from feeling like a large effects-driven movie to something that feels personal, and that you’re right there with these guys.
Was it hard to take Johnny Depp seriously at times as Tonto?
You know what, it’s so funny because the whole thing with the look, there’s a lot of symbolism behind it that comes through in the movie in terms of where the lines [on his face] came from, where the face paint came from. It’s all explained in the movie so to us it made total sense. It wasn’t until people saw pictures later and they were like, “That guy has a bird on his head!” that we were like, “Oh I guess it does kind of look funny, but don’t worry, they’ll get it.”
