Bruckheimer Talks Pirates 4 And Lone Ranger
Jerry Bruckheimer has been out and about, talking about the big projects he’s producing for Disney, in particular Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and The Lone Ranger. The guys at Coming Soon caught up with him, and got him to address some, if not all of the rumors surrounding those two projects.
He avoided addressing some of the more pressing rumors around Pirates, such as Tim Burton being considered to direct Pirates 4 or Russell Brand being cast in the film along with Depp, but he did drop some concrete facts about where things stand. For Pirates of the Caribbean 4, they’re just starting work on the script. Elliot and Rossio, who wrote the first three Pirates movies are back and working on the new sequel. It seems they’re also writing The Lone Ranger. Bruckheimer says they’re shooting for a 2012 release, and that they’ll do Pirates 4 in IMAX if they can.
As for The Lone Ranger, Bruckheimer laid some of those Clooney casting rumors to rest. Yes, Johnny Depp is playing Tonto, but Bruckheimer says they still don’t know who will be their Lone Ranger. They’re out to find a director for it first.
