The always excellent Latino Review have managed to get a look at a script for The Lone Ranger written by Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio.
Jerry Bruckheimer recently said at the Licensing International Expo that development on the film was going full steam ahead, but all we really know is that Johnny Depp is Tonto and Mike Newell may be directing it.
As for the Ranger himself, Matthew McConaughey is rumoured to be the favourite, but I am still not sure if that would work. Anyway, below is the script review and it sounds as if things could be serious on this one.

Jerry Bruckheimer who is currently working on The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time spoke to Coming Soon about the Disney films The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Johnny Depp will be back as Captain Jack and is also meant to be playing Tonto
It looks as if Disney are focused on getting the next installement of “Pirates” sorted out.
“It’s a great franchise for them and for us, too,” said Bruckheimer. “A beloved character and Johnny’s really excited about coming back to Captain Jack. He certainly is interested in Tonto, but Disney’s priority is to get ‘Pirates’ made first. You never know what’s going to happen, but they would like it.”
It makes sense for Disney to focus on a new Pirates movie. It is an almost guaranteed money maker so they will want to keep on mining that for all it is worth. I hope they take it back to the simpler kind of tale like the first film. It also looks as if Depp will be the only main star returning.
Bruckheimer shared that the original writers, Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, were “writing ‘Pirates’ as we speak,” and he said it was “funny” and a “whole new way of going” although he wouldn’t share more than that.
Since Gore Verbinski recently announced that he may not direct a movie based on the video game BioShock, Bruckheimer was aked if there was a chance he might return for a fourth movie. “You never know,” he admitted. “He created the franchise so we’d love to have him back, but it’s kind of up to him.”
Bruckheimer was then asked about what was happening with The Lone Ranger as, apart from Depp, no casting for the lead character has been announced (although Matthew McConaughey had been rumoured). “Wait until they got a director and Disney says to go make the movie.” This means previous rumours that Prince of Persia director Mike Newell was in talks to direct the movie are untrue. “We don’t have a director yet. He’s too busy on ‘Prince of Persia’ right now,” Bruckheimer confirmed.
Just so you know this is a fan made trailer.
What do you want to see in a new Pirates of the Caribbean film? Will it be the rumoured quest for the fountain of youth? Who should direct The Lone Ranger film and who would be best to play that masked man?

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?

There have been many rumours as to who will be playing Steve Rogers, The First Avenger – Captain America. Names such as Matthew McConaughey, Matt Damon, Will Smith, Aaron Eckhart and one that I posted a while back, Neal McDonough. However, one name that has cropped up recently is WWE Superstar, John Cena.
MTV caught up with the big guy to ask him. “Strictly a rumor,” said Cena but added with a smile, “If you guys are listening over at Marvel, that is a pretty cool rumor. I’m extremely patriotic, I was a captain of the football team once, so I think it works out. I think I’m your man.”
“To kill the rumor, I was never contacted by anyone,” admitted Cena. “Usually when those rumors start it’s because someone in that community thinks that I would be okay for a role. I’m flattered that they think I could play Captain America and I would be up for it.”
Yet, for an athlete known to give 250 pound bruisers the occasional “Attitude Adjustment” when necessary, could “The Champ” take himself seriously clad in a spandex jumpsuit?
“Hmm…could I take myself seriously in spandex…have you seen my other job?” joked Cena. “I think I could be alright. I think it’s a great fit.”
I personally hope that they don’t go with Cena for Captain America. I’d rather they went for a big name actor or a total unknown first (although Cena has done a bit of action before).
Who do you want to see throw Captain America’s mighty shield? Would Cena be a good choice?

The role that no one but Matthew McConaughey could play! Looks like a bit of fun anyway. It also stars Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson so no doubt stoner jokes a plenty. Due out in September 2008.
