Johnny Depp’s Movie Axed

The Lone Ranger pulled over budget disputes
Johnny Depp’s Movie Axed

Johnny Depp's highly-anticipated movie adaptation of the western
series The Lone Range has been axed, according to a US report. The Pirates of
the Caribbean star has been slated to play Tonto opposite Armie Hammer's Lone Ranger
in the Disney movie, which was scheduled for a 2012 release.

However, Disney bosses have pulled their involvement in
the film following an alleged disagreement with director, Gore Verbinski and
producer Jerry Bruckheimer about the western's budget, according to The
Hollywood Reporter. “Gore doesn’t want to budge for what he thinks a movie like
this needs,” spilled a source. “The fact that it’s a Western is a definite
concern.”
