I used to get a kick out of the Lone Ranger with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels as a kid. When we would play cowboys, our imaginary villains would be Butch Cavendish and the Cavendish Gang, the Ranger's longtime enemies. I was excited when I heard there was going to be a big screen Lone Ranger film, and disappointed that it turned out to be that infamous Clinton Spilsbury fiasco. Now there is a new Lone Ranger film in Development, and I am surprised that it took so many years for Hollywood to give the property another try. I hope it will finally do the characters justice, but I'm still unsure about Johnny Depp as Tonto. I'll withhold my judgment until I see a trailer.
