Optimism continues to favor over the much-troubled production for the highly-anticipated LONE RANGER movie after being sidelined for budgetary reasons. After last week's decision that Walt Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer were all close to finalize their budgetary issues, it seems that the studio might expect to start production on the movie either January or February 2012.
As for the cast, nothing is changed with Johnny Depp takes on the role of Tonto and Armie Hammer will play the title character. Ruth WIlson is set to play the female lead, Rebecca.
LONE RANGER is expected to hit theaters on December 21, 2012.
