Matthew McConaughey as The Lone Ranger

Posted by LiveFor on May 2, 2009

Yesterday I mentioned that Mike Newell could be directing the big screen Lone Ranger. A while back it turned out Johnny Depp would be playing Tonto, but there was no word as to who would be playing that masked man.

Now Jeffrey Wells over on Hollywood Elsewhere had this interesting piece of news.

A guy who tends to hear reliable things read this morning’s Lone Ranger item and said that “per studio desire, the leading candidate for The Lone Ranger is Matthew McConaughey. The initial choice was Christian Bale, but there’s worry about his spearheading too many franchises so they’re waiting to see how McG’s Terminator film does. He’s carrying a certain prick status at the moment due to his still reverberating rant.”

I hadn’t even thought of McConaughey in the role as I associate him with either romantic comedies or surfer typer naked bongo shenanigans. He is actual a pretty good actor when given a decent role. Still not sure if he is the best choice to sit in Silver’s saddle.

What do you think of surfer dude as the Lone Ranger?

Should Matthew McConaughey play The Lone Ranger?(online surveys)

    Is it just me, or is Depp almost-attached to every film in pre-production at the moment?

    Director? Check.
    Producer? Check?
    Lighting, sets, cameras? Check.
    Depp?…Anyone seen the Depp?
