Not to miss a beat, producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted the photo you see below of Arnie Hammer as the titular Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as his sidekick Tonto. Click the image for a larger view.
Er … okay. Not quite like any version of Tonto I’ve seen before, but then again this is being directed by Gore Verbinski (who directed the first three Pirate of the Caribbean), and he is known for some odd make-up choices, but this is just out there. I’m not quite sure why he has a bird on his head, but … well, it’s Johnny Depp, so who really knows.
The Lone Ranger will hit theaters on May 31, 2013.
