Disney has pushed the production start for Lone Ranger by one week, with shooting now slated to begin February 13, 2012.

Last week, we reported Disney had set a February 6, 2012 production start date for Lone Ranger. No reason was given why the start of principal photography was moved up. We also reported last week that Disney will release Lone Ranger on May 31, 2013.

Gore Verbinski is directing Lone Ranger from a screenplay by Justin Haythe. Johnny Depp will star as Tonto, while Armie Hammer portrays the title character. Ruth Wilson, Helena Bonham Carter, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Dwight Yoakam also star.
