Johnny Depp - First Look: Johnny Depp As Tonto In The Lone Ranger

The first picture of Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer as Tonto and The Lone Ranger have been leaked by Jerry Bruckheimer on Twitter. The picture, which was posted today (March 8, 2012), was accompanied by a message that read simply "Tonto and the Lone Ranger Ride Again," after he had hinted the previous night that he would have something significant to share in the morning.
The picture shows the two actors in full costume and makeup, set against a blue but cloudy sky. Johnny Depp, as Tonto, is sporting an elaborate headdress with what looks like a stuffed crow resting on his head. Feathers hang from his headband and his face is painted chalk-white, with black vertical lines. The new version of the classic Western story is being directed by Gore Verbinski - the man behind Rango and the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies and, according to Entertainment Weekly, will be looking to make the Lone Ranger's sidekick Tonto into a more prominent character. Armie Hammer, who played the dual role of Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in 2010's The Social Network, is pictured looking dapper as The Lone Ranger, in a large white Stetson, black eye mask and red neckerchief.
