PostSubject: Lone Ranger   Sat Oct 15, 2011 2:01 pm

First topic message reminder :

Just read that the new Lone Ranger movie will commence filming in February of 2012 and be released in May of 2013. Johnny Depp and others have reduced their salaries to make this film change from an on again, off again project to a full blown "on again" project. New Mexico will be the first filming location. Unknown what else is planned at this time. Depp indicates that the character of Tonto will not be portrayed as a second class person and looks forward to what he thinks will be a fun movie. Guess all of that remains to be seen and hopefully the finished product won't be something to make most or all of us groan. Bullfrog Bill

Iain,
You are correct,I was one of the "sceptics" with the remake of True Grit,I was proved wrong,it was very good in it,s own right,and it proved that we can like both versions.
I also agree with Pirates,the FIRST one of course,like many other "firsts" the follow-up wasn ,t anywhere near the same quality as the original,but lets not forget that POTC was very good,and Johnny Dep was very good also,so,we,ll just have to wait and see.
IF The Lone Ranger/Johnny Dep is good,we might just see a wee revival in taking our fave 50,s western tv series heros and putting them onto the BIG screen?I for one would be interested in seeing that "modern take" on Cheyenne/Rifleman/Rawhide,lets not forget that Mel Gibson did a fair remake of Maverick,in my opinion,so,for me anyway,I would love to see a modern take on Cheyenne Bodie,by the way,we all know Johnny Dep is playing Tonto,but,WHO is playing The Lone Ranger?????have I missed out on that?
Davy,westernnut.

Davy: Armie Hammer is playing the Lone Ranger. 26 years old and his work portfolio is primarily made up of a variety of tv episodes. www.imdb.com will give you the details. RE: Johnny Depp - Last week I spent a couple of nights in Moab, UT. Wife and I took the Canyonlands By Night boat tour and the guide was talking about one scene being shot on what I believe is called highway 128. Depp is riding on the back of some type of pick-up truck but in the movie you'll be seeing Depp riding on the top of a train. Not sure how that works, but Hollywood has its way of doing things. Like I've heard numerous times before, Depp was the complete gentleman when dealing with the locals whether working on the film or just relaxing. The movie and Depp's "Tonto" might be the biggest thing in modern times for the western genre or might be the total implosion of the genre. I can't pass judgement until I see the movie but I'll keep my frog fingers crossed that the movie will stir up interest to make more westerns. I heard many moons ago that some studio was thinking about making a "Hopalong Cassidy" movie, but that rumor has died on the rumor vine. Yes Davy, I did see "Nick of Time" but haven't seen "From Hell." Of course while visiting Moab, I had the common decency to drive through Monument Valley with about a 30 minute pause at John Ford Point. While there I reflected on the movies Ford made in Monument Valley and the surrounding areas of Utah. What a wonderful feeling to be where, in my humble opinion, John Ford set the bar so high in movie making, nobody will ever attain that height again. After reading several books about John Ford and his way of dealing with various people, actors being verbally brutalized, Navajos being treated fair and square and admired, I still daydream about Ford directing and Depp starring in a western. I kinda thing that crow's head on Depp's Tonto might have been hit with a sledgehammer by Ford, while Depp was wearing it. Of course the finished product would have made a great movie, Depp's performance would be held in high regard and everyone would say, "Ford does it again, another classic."

Davy, the guy playing the Lone Ranger is an actor named Armie Hammer (Armie is short for Armand Douglas Hammer, and he is the great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer). He been in a couple TV series: Veronica Mars, Gossip Girl, and Desperate Housewives. He also appeared in J. Edgar, the movie about FBI founder and director J. Edgar Hoover, directed by Clint Eastwood, and The Social Network, the movie about the founding of Facebook. He relatively unknown, and Davy, you're right. With all the hooplah about Johnny Depp playing Tonto, and the weird get-up he's wearing, I think young Armie will still be unknown after this movie comes out.

Bill,Tinhorn,
THANKS for the info Pards,much appreciated,even though I dont know who Ammer is,maybe after the film I will,fingers crossed.
Bill bullfrog,my ole Friend/PARD,I agree completely with your "appraisal" of John Ford,I,ve got the greatest admiration/respect for other great western directors,John Sturges/Gordon Douglas and "the rest",but it,s FORD who gives me MAGIC,I know some people will say that Ford,s WEST was "make-believe" and certainly not "real"?????
WHO CARES?????Bill,for guys like you and I,Ford,s WEST is what we WANT,it,s as simple as that,
John Ford is still THE MAN!!!!!!!
Davy,westernnut.

On making new from old, with Clint Walker still with us, who could replace his Cheyenne? Kevin Sorbo is the only actor around I can think of who could pull it off. He's the right size height wise and has proven himself believable in the saddle. Keeping with my thoughts on keeping the old fans with the new ones, if they hurry up, you could have Clint as the original and there would still be enough time in the West to have Sorbo as his son, getting help from Dad when he needs it. And as with Maverick, grab what's left of the 'old timers' for cameos.

This may not have anything to do with the movie, but I didn't want to create a new thread for this. A friend of mine repairs musical instruments, and he posted a pic of this rarity that was brought to him. He's thinking it dates back to the 1950s.

Davy-----with I late replay, I have turned 65 the other week. I must have been having a lot of fun in my life because time really did fly by for me. One day I'm a cocky young smart aleck and then---Pfffft------I'm an OLD COOT! WOW! A few months ago I was leaving the grocery store parking lot and a car full of young pups was turning in. They tooted the horn and a couple waved and said "How's it going, grand pa?". I went "Huh?", looked around, and wondered who the heck they were talking to. Then I figured it out.

Soured me up for the rest of the day, LOL!!!!!

Howdy Cole!!

Good to see you posting again!!
We've missed you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As far as the teeny boppers, why didn't you just pick up a rock and throw it through the car window????????????? If they touch, curse or otherwise harass you, they're all going to jail for bothering a senior citizen!! Then they git to learn another lesson about this ole world, that their mother didn't teach them!!!!!
Just remember to bend over slightly, hold your leg and tell the cop, that they almost ran you down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ed

P.S.

I say this, just in case your not packing a .45 to use for target practice on their tires!!

First,the dvd I have of this CLASSIC is beautiful,stunning, Andy Mowatt concurs,the film itself???????words fail me,it,s simply A CLASSIC!!!!!!made 62 years ago????

After watching the following, The Lone Ranger may not be too bad but I still have a problem with Depp wearing the crow all the time. And it looks like Silver plays a major role in the education of The Masked Man. Check it out:

Oh, yay. Helena Bonham Carter is in it. I'm glad it's not directed by Tim Burton!
