Pirates director to tackle The Lone Ranger

Gore Verbinski, who helmed the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, has officially signed on to producer Jerry Bruckheimer's feature version of The Lone Ranger.

The move will reunite Verbinski with his Capt. Jack Sparrow, as star Johnney Depp has long been attached to the project as Tonto. There is still no word on who will play the titular Ranger or when the film will go into production.

The Lone Ranger last appeared on the big screen in the early 1980s, so the character is due for a revival. I've always had a soft spot for The Lone Ranger as my dad was a big fan of the radio show and I listened to the program on audio tape as a boy.
