"The Social Network" star Armie Hammer is Hollywood's latest "It" boy. After landing the role of Prince Charming in the upcoming live-action "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White" movie, Hammer is being eyed to play the title character in "The Lone Ranger."
Ryan Gosling was initially in talks to portray the masked Texas ranger in director Gore Verbinksi's update on the classic character.
According to The Wrap, Gosling is now out of the running, and Hammer—who played the Winklevoss twins in "The Social Network"—is circling the role. Johnny Depp is already on board as the Lone Ranger's sidekick, Tonto.
Hammer certainly seems to be on a roll these days. Besides landing "Snow White" and possibly headlining "The Lone Ranger," he will also appear opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in "J. Edgar" as J. Edgar Hoover's lover.
The actor wasn't always so lucky, however. In 2007, he was cast as Batman in the "Justice League of America" movie, which was called off days before shooting because of the writer's strike.
I've been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours today, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
Thank goodness the movie won't be made. Enough remakes already.
Sorry, but Armie Hammer doesn't look like the "he-man" type to be the Lone Ranger. Is this the best we can find?
Depp is absolutely correct, Native Americans have been portrayed in a ludicrous manner for decades and I'm sure he's just the one to do his part to change that.......high time too
It is admazing how no matter what the subject people have mean negatived ideals. mean and cruel things to say. lots of unhappy people in this world..
DOOOOO DOOOOOO PEEEE PEEEEE GRANDMA !
I wish someone would post some good doodooo jokes this morning. Everyone is being too nice.
They are also remaking The Great Gatsby in 3D ! I wonder if the lead is practicing smiling in the mirror ?
its cheaper for them have ppl to ruin a classic movie/tv shows than to hire people who are willing to write originals
Damn that's a lot. Hollywood lost its touch or they are just plain lazy.
After the long ranger finished Tontos ass screwing Tonto would clean the fudge from Kemosbis tool.
Heh, well I dunno if I have the patience to check them all, but just off the top of my head we have... lone ranger, three stooges, the bodyguard, superman reboot, spiderman reboot, xmen reboot, batman reboot after nolan's last movie, we recently had the karate kid, annie remake, wizard of oz prequel. I'm SURE I'm forgetting more than a few. I wish cnn would do a story on hollywood's remake fever as it's getting ridiculous
Superhiro, for sure! You wanna be in charge of that job? Seriously. We'd be amazed at the #, I'm sure ! Let us know & good luck w/ your research !
Man.. one of us should start a tally of how many garbage remakes Hollywood has announced this year. This has to be at least the 20th one.
Is the Lone Ranger going to be realistic where Lone Ranger goes and gets that drunk Injun Tonto off the reservation?
The Lone Ranger would ply Tonto with FireWater then screw his Indian ass 9 ways to Sunday.
Hey, Knievel: Zip the lip...or whatever else needs zipping. Tonto was a Mohawk.
So am I. SO unless you know what you're talking about, shut it. Jay Silverheels
