CHICAGO – A first look at the new movie “The Lone Ranger” has been released, showing Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in the leading roles of Tonto and John Reid (The Lone Ranger). Producer Jerry Bruckheimer leaked the image on Twitter this morning showing the masked Hammer and Depp in full Tonto costume.

For those wishing to cry foul, Depp has said in the past that he is part Cherokee, though no one really knows for sure how much he may be. His Tonto character has been said to have a more substantial role in this version of the story, rather than just being a sidekick to The Lone Ranger.

The big-budget film began shooting in New Mexico recently and is directed by Gore Verbinski (first three “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, “Rango”). The film also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, and Barry Pepper.

Take a first look at the photo for the new movie, which is planned for a May 31, 2013 release, and keep an eye out on HollywoodChicago for more “The Lone Ranger” news as it comes in:
