Disney is gearing up to start production on Lone Ranger in February, and the studio recently issued another casting call which reveals the first synopsis. Take a look at the plot rundown below.
"Left for dead in an ambush with five other Texas Rangers, lawman John Reid (Armie Hammer) survives and is nursed back to health by an Indian scout named Tonto (Johnny Depp). He then dons a mask to avenge the murders of his comrades and to foil evil doers, never accepting payment for his services. His gratis vigilantism is made possible by the silver mine he inherits from one of his slain brothers - the same mine that affords him an endless supply of his trademark silver bullets."
The casting call will take place on Sunday, December 11 between 9 AM and 4 PM at Far Horizon Studios in Albuquerque, New Mexico (300 Washington St. SE Suite 304). The production is seeking males with no facial hair, males with a lot of facial hair, females, Native Americans, Asians, and horseback riders. It is said candidates must be available from February 13, 2012 through July 14, 2012.
