Disney has announced that production has begun for the Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ motion picture “The Lone Ranger.”

Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski join Johnny Depp, who plays Tonto, and Armie Hammer, who will play John Reid, aka the Lone Ranger. “The Lone Ranger” will film exteriors and studio work in New Mexico, followed by locations in Arizona, Utah and Colorado.

Here’s how Disney describes the film:

“The Lone Ranger” is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

The film is scheduled to open on May 31, 2013.
