Jerry Bruckheimer speaks about The Lone Ranger on which he acted as the producer. The whole project began many years ago when he bought the rights to the film. Prior to this Bruckheimer had always shown an interest in the Western genre, he explains: 'The first picture I ever did in the 70's (The Culpepper Cattle Co.) was a western and I always wanted to come back to the genre. 5 years ago, when the rights came up for The Lone Ranger, we were lucky enough to purchase the rights with Disney's blessing.' He goes on to explain his reasons behind choosing this film specifically: 'What I like about The Lone Ranger is it's a character who's out for justice, he's been wronged in the past. It's also close to my heart, it started out in 1933 as a radio show in Detroit where I'm from and I grew up with it on TV and I wanted to be a cowboy!'
When asked about what Johnny Depp brings to the table he simply says, 'Johnny Depp brings magic to whatever he does. He creates these brilliant characters, which aren't necessarily on the page; Jack Sparrow wasn't on the page, he created it out of his imagination and from people he knew. Tonto was the same, he certainly wasn't on the page, it was his vision.'
