Bruckheimer to helm Lone Ranger project.
EW (http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com) has learned that "Pirates of the Caribbean" screenwriters Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot are reuniting with Jerry Bruckheimer for a new film based on "The Lone Ranger."
"The Lone Ranger" was originally a radio show in the 1930s and then was turned into a live-action television show in the 1950s. The series told of a Texas Ranger in the Old West with a Native American sidekick, Tonto.
I'm interested to see where they can take this. I would expect a POTC feel to it, but obviously set in the old west. Hopefully it will better than the damn Zorro movies... cuz those sucked.
