Take a peek at Depp & Hammer in ‘The Lone Ranger’

Heigh-ho, Silver! It’s Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in “The Lone Ranger”!

With the first week of filming finally wrapped, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has released the first photo from the much-anticipated remake of the television classic about the famous masked man and his savvy Native American sidekick.

“Tonto and The Lone Ranger ride again, Bruckheimer tweeted March 8th (on And the retweeters went wild, zipping the photo of the heavily made-up and feather-locked Depp and the buttoned-up and masked Hammer all over cyberspace.

The actual film, directed by Gore Verbinski, is due in cinemas nationwide in May 2013.

Here’s the party-line of the plot-line for “The Lone Ranger” movie:

“The Lone Ranger” is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

Movie buffs are familiar with Depp from his popular role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Disney “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, as well as many turns in Tim Burton’s films. Hammer, who first found fame in “Gossip Girl” and “The Social Network,” has also appeared in "Mirror, Mirror" and “Flicka.”

The two are certainly a far cry from the original Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, who saddled up in the original "Lone Ranger" series. Who's got a hankering to see the new film, when it gallops into movie theaters?
