#NM The Lone Ranger Cast Takes Shape & the Plot Thickens

Posted by on December 8, 2011 | Comments Off on #NM The Lone Ranger Cast Takes Shape & the Plot Thickens

Pictured left to right, actors James Badge Dale, Barry Pepper, Ruth Wilson (confirmed female lead), Tom Wilkinson (confirmed villian) and Helena Bonham Carter are set or in talks to round out the lead cast, under Johnny Depp’s Tonto and Armie Hammer in the title role for the confirmed New Mexico shoot of Disney’s “The Lone Ranger”.

With recent and upcoming casting calls for “Silver Bullet” being held in New Mexico, neither Disney or the local casting director have confirmed or denied any association between the two titles – however Disney has released the following preliminary synopsis for the NM shoot…

“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.”

Per the popular, Farmington New Mexico edition of The Daily-Times, Silver Bullet casting director Elizabeth Gabel says, “besides the large numbers, we are also looking for some very specific roles, like a trapeze artist and circus performers.”

Furthermore Gabel tells the publication that she is “looking for both males and females with American Indian heritage, men with lots of facial hair and people that could be of Irish descent” adding that casting will go on over the entire production process which is slated through August 2012.

With that we say, “Hi-yo, Silver! Away!”

Creole Ranger Away – Bruckheimer Talks Taking Tonto to Louisiana

Posted by on October 19, 2011 | One comment

You can take the Native American out of Tonto, but can you take the West out of this western?

The Lone Ranger project has been all but laid to rest once already, to that end producers are now addressing ongoing budgetary concerns. Specifically, Jerry Bruckheimer deconstructs the approximate $10M price slash for The Hollywood Reporter, including the back-and-forth possibility of breaking-up the NM portion of the shoot, hauling it out of the West and into Louisiana where incentives are higher.

“We redid the production plan. We originally laid it out to avoid winter. Every single location we had, there was winter — 30s at night, 50s during the day, best-case scenario. We were jumping around. California, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah. If we had a big crowd scene and then the next day we were shooting just Tonto and the Lone Ranger, we still had the crew “on” because you have them weekly. So we bunched the sequences that were big together, and for the smaller scenes [we] laid off the extras, the effects people, the makeup people. It costs an enormous amount with 150 extras on the set. It’s not the extras, it’s the people that support the extras. You’re still carrying all the wardrobe, makeup and hair people. We bunched together scenes with Tonto and the Lone Ranger, so we had a much smaller crew. We saved about $10 million just by doing that.

Then we looked for the best break in tax incentives. We found that Louisiana gave us a better tax incentive than New Mexico — that was another $8 million. We’re still shooting in New Mexico, and we might [also] go to Louisiana. We’re asking New Mexico to come closer to the Louisiana incentive.

We dropped our California location not because they didn’t offer a tax break but because it was another production office that we had to open. Every time you have a new location, you have to use crew time setting it up for you. There are a lot of expenses.”

Bring it all the way home New Mexico, get a piece of this epic Disney Western with some back-end action or something in exchange for meeting the request…Keep our hotels loaded, tourists coming and our cast & crews employed…and maybe a little global PR to follow, so maybe the rest of the country learns in this century that NM is part of the continental UNITED STATES AND that we have better skiing than AZ.

N. Mex has already lost Quentin Tarantino’s Spaghetti Western Django Unchained starring Leonardo DiCaprio, NM Fave Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz, which starts shooting this November in NOLA.

Thanks Chris
