Johnny Depp Wants George Clooney Or Brad Pitt For The Lone Ranger
After years of being stuck in development hell, things are finally moving forward on the film adaptation of The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp. The project recently named Gore Verbinski as its director (it will be his fifth time working with the actor after Rango comes out next year), but still has one major roadblock: they don't have anyone playing the title character. With Depp playing the sidekick, Tonto, however, the production will require an equal or bigger name for The Lone Ranger, and Depp already has two names in mind. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Depp revealed that two names at the top of his list are George Clooney and Brad Pitt. The actor has never done a feature film with either one, though Pitt did guest star in an episode of 21 Jump Street back in 1987.
As I see it, there is only one problem with these two possible choices: there won't be a man on the planet who will be able to go see the movie because every theater will be packed with swooning females. Outside of that, though, either one sounds dynamite.
