Jerry Bruckheimer - Jerry Bruckheimer: 'Lone Ranger Will Be A Great Movie In 10 Years'

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has defended The Lone Ranger after it proved a flop with film fans, insisting it will be classed as a great movie in years to come.

Director Gore Verbinski's modern reimagining of the Wild West tale, featuring Armie Hammer as the masked lawman and Johnny Depp as his trusted sidekick Tonto, bombed when it earned just $29.4 million (£19.6 million) at the U.S. box office on its opening weekend earlier this month (Jul13).

The movie also failed to impress the critics, but Bruckheimer is adamant its detractors will look back on it with fondness in years to come - like his camp 1983 dance classic Flashdance.

He says, "It reminds me of a critic who called Flashdance a 'toxic dump'. Ten years later (the critic) said, 'This is really a good movie. I missed it.' I think (The Lone Ranger is) going to be looked back on as a brave, wonderful film."
