Ryan Gosling to take on the Lone Ranger? Walt Disney Pictures is currently in talks with Ryan Gosling to co-star in their upcoming reboot Lone Ranger. The actor will appear opposite Johnny Depp, whose Tonto will actually be the lead, if he decides to take the part.

Ryan Gosling has already signed onto appear in Logan's Run, which may keep him from accepting the role of John Reid, aka the Lone Ranger. Logan's Run is scheduled to shoot in the fall, but it isn't quite clear when Lone Ranger will begin production. Johnny Depp is first shooting Dark Shadows, which is ramping up at this very moment.

Walt Disney's Lone Ranger will be told through the point-of-view of Tonto, while the masked man himself will become more of a sidekick. Timothy Olyphant and George Clooney have also been mentioned for this role.

The Lone Ranger was released July 3rd, 2013.

          Hmm interesting choice. I would never have thought of it. Maybe thats what this films needs.

          @2movieguys I bareley remember that film from when i was a kid. I remeber some scene witha gatling gun but thats it. I never see it on cable and i never see it on DVD. It must have been God Awful.

              Gosling would be excellent. He has a weird style like Johnny Depp's style. Ryan Gosling and Ben Foster are on their way to being the next great character actors.

                    Love Ryan and George, I am sure they would do excellent with this, but Olyphant is my #1 choice.

                      timothy Olyphant is the way to go


                      • geof36 • 4 years ago

                        I still think Timothy Olyphant is the only way to go.

                            George Clooney is the way to go. Unless their doing an origin story, I imagine the Lone Ranger being an slighty aged to aged, grisly man.
