Word as of now is that George Clooney has shown a lot of interest in the role of the Lone Ranger, and the studio's been talking to him about it. Previously it was rumored that Nic Cage was up for the role, but that rumor died a long time ago. Clooney's name has come up quite a number of times since. Electric DreamsKeep in mind this means the matter's only in the talking stages at the moment & far from a "done deal". But a Clooney/Depp LONE RANGER movie...produced with Bruckheimer flair...could be pretty cool if you ask me (and no one has).
