Johnny Depp and Jerry Bruckheimer are on the set of The Lone Ranger in New Mexico. Depp is once again seen in costume for his character in the film, Tonto. He has taken heat lately for his choice of costume design as well as for being cast in the role, from Screenrant.com:
"One of the sources for the controversy surrounding Disney’s Lone Ranger reboot has been the decision to feature Johnny Depp as the titular hero’s American Indian sidekick, Tonto. Reactions have ranged from supportive – including leaders of the Navajo Nation – to skepticism about Depp’s asserted Cherokee/Creek heritage – and even outcries that Depp playing Tonto is tantamount to the actor going “Redface.”

Producer extraordinaire Jerry Bruckheimer has been busy lately. Not only is he busy getting the updated version of The Lone Ranger (starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer) filmed in New Mexico, but he's also been busy tweeting lots of pics from the set:
"We’ve got some great hats on the set of The Lone Ranger… "

They most certainly do! There seems to be a whole lot going down on that set. Awesome hats, cool old cars, building 5 miles or train tracks and they even took time to wish director Gore Verbinski a Happy Birthday! I can't wait to see this movie, anything starring Johnny Depp is well worth the price of admission.
