WATCH: 'World War Z'-ero! Ranking The Super Bowl Movie Trailers From Worst To Best

WATCH: 'Lone Ranger' Trailer Teases Depp's Tonto, Lone Ranger Not So Much

Inspiration came from a painting entitled "I Am Crow" by artist Kirby Sattler: "It seemed to me like you could almost see the separate sections of the individual, if you know what I mean," Depp said.

Johnny Depp Lone Ranger Project Reportedly Back On for Slightly Less Stupid Money

When Disney pulled the plug on its expensive Lone Ranger project, which was to reunite Pirates of the Caribbean cohorts Johnny Depp, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Gore Verbinski, a few industry-watchers held out hope that the studio and the filmmakers would yet still reach an agreement over how many hundreds of millions of dollars the would-be franchise would cost.
