Set photos hit the internet as production continues for Walt Disney Pictures’ The Lone Ranger. The images show a bird’s-eye view of a small town constructed in the state of New Mexico.
In the movie, Johnny Depp starts as Tonto, a Native American spirit warrior who re-lives tales that turn lawman John Reid into a legend of justice. The two heroes team up to fight against greed and corruption that plagues the west.
The film was nearly shelved due to budget issues, but producers were able to reach an agreement to get the film done under $200 million. This comes after the huge flop of Disney’s John Carter, which caused the studio a whopping $200 million loss.
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, The Lone Ranger also stars Armie Hammer as John Reid, William Fichtner, Berry Pepper, Tom Wilkinson, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Carter.
The film is scheduled to be in IMAX 2D/3D and regular theaters May 31, 2013.
