Tom Wilkinson eyes Lone Ranger project
Tom Wilkinson is in negotiations to join Disney's Lone Ranger, starring opposite Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp.

Tom Wilkinson would portray a railroad tycoon in the Old West. Armie Hammer stars as the masked Texas Ranger, and his trusty sidekick, Tonto, will be played by Johnny Depp.

Gore Verbinski will direct the project, which starts production this fall.
