‘Lone Ranger’ Stars Are — or Were? — Signed Up for Sequels

According to a Press Association report, Johnny Depp, who plays Tonto in The Lone Ranger said he'd be "ready to go in a second" if Disney were to greenlight a sequel to the film, which opens today.

But other details in the story suggest Depp is downplaying Disney's plans when he describes the $250-million action-comedy as "a one-shot deal." Both Armie Hammer, who plays the title character, and British actress Ruth Wilson have said they're committed to do a Lone Ranger trilogy should Disney consider it a good idea.

And there's the rub, to some extent: There are few, if any, signs that this film, which has been a major topic of debate in Indian country, will be a success.

The showdown for Fourth-of-July box-office dollars is between The Lone Ranger and Despicable Me 2. The Hollywood Reporter has the animated feature "crushing" the western, pulling in $4.7 million in advance ticket sales; The Lone Ranger gets less than half that figure. THR's verdict: "Lone Ranger will need to have strong legs and do especially big business overseas just to break even."
