Jerry Bruckheimer: Lone Ranger actor won't be a star
Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Bruckheimer said that he wants to cast someone not as famous as Johnny Depp, who plays play sidekick Tonto, as the masked hero.
"You want somebody who can do the humour and somebody who's attractive and charismatic. But I think it will be somebody who's not that well known. That's my guess," the CSI helmer said.
Bruckheimer went on to say that Depp would create a "really fascinating character", similar to what he achieved with Captain Jack in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
The pair recently worked together on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is set to hit UK cinemas on May 18th.
It also stars Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane, Judi Dench, Sam Claflin, Richard Griffiths and Gemma Ward.
