Rumor: Clooney to play Lone Ranger?
These are some pretty top-of-the-A-list stars. Clooney might seem a little older Ranger than what you’d expect, especially if the film is an origin story and anticipates sequels. On the other hand, he’s a great actor who has yet to really land a franchise hero role. (Danny Ocean’s an anti-hero, isn’t he?) (EDIT: It was pointed out I’m leaving out Batman, here. I had meant to say “successful franchise,” which “Batman & Robin” wasn’t, though Batman without Clooney has gone on to do pretty well.)
There is some question in the Hollywood Reporter article that Depp’s casting could offend American Indian groups; the article does point out Depp is of mixed ancestry, including Cherokee.
“The Lone Ranger” doesn’t yet have a director, but is being written by the writers of “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
