The Lone Ranger is a big screen adaption of the classic 1940s TV and radio series. It will produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski. Said the former to Entertainment Weekly awhile back:

"When the idea came up [for the movie], I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way try to reinvent the relationship to attempt to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans - not only in The Lone Ranger, but the way Indians were treated throughout history of cinema - and turn it on its head."

Are you excited for The Lone Ranger remake?
