The Lone Ranger is gonna have to travel a LOOOOONG way to catch bad guys ... 'cause brand new video shows the set for the new movie is MILES from any sort of civilization.

Producers have erected an authentic-looking old west town in the middle of the New Mexico desert ... complete with a saloon, a jail and a real functioning railway.

Price was no object ... the budget for the movie, featuring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, is reported to be north of $200 MILLION.

Where can I buy pre-sale tickets. They'll make their money back. Ticket sales, video sales, video games, apps, & action figures. Hopefully, Johnny's divorce doesn't eat all of his residual payments.

$200 Million Budget:
That would be $190 Million for Eddie Peenis Glands, and $10 Million for everything else.

They're going to need a lot of talent and luck!
A great script, cinematography, helming, music score, etc! etc! should make it profitable.
200 plus mil? And we don't even know the promotional costs!
A very important thing: the story has to be believable.

I guess the writer of this article meant **worth** and hopefully it would be a stretch from Depp's usuall "Burtoneske" acting where he repeatively play seems psychotic roles!

On the down side, Johnny is wearing whiteface even in non-Tim Burton films now apparently. On the up side, William Freaking Fichtner is the villian so who cares what anyone else will be doing.
