Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow in a Movie That Isn’t ‘Pirates of the Caribbean?’

Johnny Depp Tonto Jack SparrowSo the producer, director, and writers behind Pirates of the Caribbean were slowly hired to work on a movie version of The Lone Ranger over the course of three years (2007-2010), and naturally their choice to play Native American spirit warrior Tonto was Johnny Depp.

While Depp does have Cherokee ancestry, this is really just an excuse for him to paint his face like he did for the cannibal scene in Pirates 2.

I saw a commercial for the film last night before This is 40, did a little research when I got home and found out that it’s actually 10 years in the making and was meant to be released this week, but was pushed to July because the budget was inching closer and closer to $300 million. 

Maybe some things just aren’t meant to be? Who needs a slightly more serious sequel to Wild Wild West when we have Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters?

Watch Jack Sparrow almost get hit by a train and decide for yourself. And praise Jerry Bruckheimer for cutting the scene with the “supernatural coyotes.” Cause that would have made it bad. Er.
