Is the 'Lone Ranger' back on track?
Johnny Depp and his Captain Jack Sparrow mug was a big part of Disney's introductory video to the entire presentation, but there wasn't one mention of his embattled flick "The Lone Ranger." Disney shutdown production of "Ranger" a week ago Friday with budget concerns being the reason a Depp, Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski reunion might be turned away. All three men are trying to bring the film's budget down (Disney reported wants it at $215 million), but both sides are far apart. This would have been the perfect opportunity for Ross to say publicly he wants the film to happen, but he remained mum onstage. Not a good sign.
