Scenic Photos From ‘Lone Ranger’ Set; Bruckheimer Says Film Is Almost Wrapped

The Lone Ranger has easily been the most buzzed about major movie of 2012 in Indian country — even though it won’t come out until next year — and its producer Jerry Bruckheimer has announced via his official blog that filming is nearly complete:

125 days of shooting seemed to fly by. We dealt with winds up to 70 mph, rain, snow, and even wildfires but nothing has stopped us from filming this incredible movie.

The film is directed by Gore Verbinski (who also worked with Bruckheimer and Depp on some of the Pirates of the Caribbean films) and stars Armie Hammer in the title role. But what’s made the movie such a topic of conversation, even debate, is the choice to cast Johnny Depp as Tonto. Yet it’s clear that Indian country — the country itself, in all its scenic beauty — will be well represented.

Check out the breathtaking photos of Monument Valley that Bruckheimer has tweeted during the filming:

Mar 13: We had snow and temperatures in the 20's Saturday night. Today it's 65 and sunny blue skies. Perfect shooting weather
