A couple of weeks ago news came out that Armie Hammer (The Social Network) was being considered for the title role in Disney/Bruckheimer's upcoming project The Lone Ranger. Johnny Depp has been attached to the movie to play Tonto for years but no one was filling the black mask yet. Today Variety broke the news that Armie Hammer will indeed be playing 'Kemo Sabe'.
Prior to arming himself with silver bullets, Hammer will play co-star in Relativity Media's version of Snow White - also starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins.
There is currently no official release date set for The Lone Ranger.
