The Lone Ranger's Back In The Saddle

The Lone Ranger's Back In The Saddle

With a new, tighter budgetBack in August, it looked like Disney’s big plan to make a film version of The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer and director Gore Verbinski all involved might never happen, since the studio had balked at the project’s hefty cost. Now, after a few weeks of talks and money bargaining, Deadline reports that the Ranger is back in the saddle with a reduced budget.We say “reduced” but it’s still a lot: while the original estimates for the film put it around $250 - $275 million (which had the Mouse House’s bean counters refusing to turn on the greenlight), it’s apparently now going to be shot for a thriftier $215 million.Why so pricey?
