The Lone Ranger

Due out at the end of May 2013 (if the world as we know still exists) is "The Lone Ranger."  A remake of a remake of a famous TV series and before that it was a radio show back in the 1930s,  When I was a kid, the Lone Ranger was played by Clayton Moore. In 1981 Klinton Spilsbury played the title character in the movie "The Legend of the Lone Ranger."  Armie Hammer ("The Social Network") plays the Texas Ranger who along with six other Rangers were ambushed by the Butch Cavendish gang.  Not sure if this is going to happen in this version. Oh yes, that pirate looking Native American is none other than Johnny Depp ("Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, "The Rum Diary").  Looking forward to hear Armie shout "Hi-yo, Silver! Away!"
