THE LONG RANGER has been hotly discussed as the next PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN since it was first announced. The comparison is apt given it's from the same team, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski, and Disney studios.  Given the first image from the film that was just released today, it looks like it'll be very much in that vein. See the full image after the break.

Johnny Depp looks fierce as Tonto, a spirit warrior on a personal quest. In the film, he joins forces in a fight for justice with John Reid, played by Armie Hammer, a lawman who has become a masked avenger.

While the story is nothing new, this will definitely be a new take on the tale and it looks to be epic in scope. With Bruckheimer in the mix, you know everything will be big. And Johnny Depp will of course add that absurd, over-the-top charisma that made Captain Jack Sparrow such a memorable character. When previously talking about the project, Verbinksi said “The only version of THE LONE RANGER I’m interested in doing is ‘Don Quixote’ told from Sancho Panza’s point of view.” I for one, am very interested to see that version of the story.

THE LONE RANGER will be released in May 2013.
