Johnny Depp's Love Life Delays Start of THE LONE RANGER

Johnny Depp's Love Life Delays Start of THE LONE RANGER

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that principal photography for the perpetually delayed The Lone Ranger will not start on Feb. 12 like expected.

Johnny Depp Reads is a fan site for some actor, I can't remember which one, but I'm sure it'll come to me. Anyways, a member of that community posted that in the upcoming February 10th issue of The Hollywood Reporter on page 30 there will be a story about Johnny Depp's "personal life" delaying the start of filming for The Lone Ranger.

About Town section by rambling reporters Merlo Ginseberg & Gary Bowan

Hi-you Silver-but not right away. The revived Lone Ranger will not gallop into principal photography Feb 12 as planned, after being pushed back from a fall 2011 shoot when its budget got shaved by $40 million. Now it's getting held a big more. A source on the film says star Johnny Depp, who's playing Tonto, approached Gore Verbinski- his director on three Pirates films and Rango----and asked for a reprieve of a week or two, so he can deal with his "personal life". We assume he was referring to his deep divide with paramour Vanessa Paradis. Verbinski reply? That it would cost $ 4 million--but he 'd do it for Depp. A spokesperson from Disney confirms the date push, but not the reason for it, nor the expense.

While EG Casting has posted a message also confirming that there is a delay.
We will not have extras on Silver Bullet until March. We did get pushed by two weeks. We will be call to cast from Mid January to July, so  please be patient and don't think we have forgotten you.

Ok, so what is going on? Well this is where the rumors get good and juicy. Supposedly Johnny Depp has recently separated from the mother of his two kids, Vanessa Paradis. And what caused this split of the power couple? Try Eva Green (Casino Royale), his new co-star of the upcoming Tim Burton film, Dark Shadows. (

The Lone Ranger will be released in theaters May 31, 2013. The film stars Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as Tonto. Also starring in the movie: Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, Dwight Yoakam, Barry Pepper and Timothy Hutton.

Celebrity weddings/relationships very rarely work out. In the case of Johnny Depp, say what you want about him, but does anyone realize how many hot girls, young and old, would throw themselves at his feet? Dude can have his pick of women; be like "ol George Clooney. I suspect he just has finally grown tired of her, and, perhaps, she with him. Unfortunate.

I've always thought he was an odd casting for Tonto. I'm sure he'll make it work though. I actually commend him for putting his personal life first; not many actors would do that. If it were being delayed several months, then I'd say this is a big deal, but it's only a week or two, no biggie.

I've been willing to leave any woman I'm with for Eva Green , ever since I saw Kingdom of Heaven...

He delayed it so he can start production on Pirates 5,6,7,8,9, and 10. All will revolve around yes you guessed it right, Captain Jack Sparrow.

They should just get someone else . Maybe someone who actually looks or IS Native American. Not a big fan of Johnny Depp which is a shame because I've always been a fan of Lone Ranger franchise. My hatred typically outweighs my desire to enjoy the brands I once loved - I'm looking at you Michael Bay!

It's Depp's duty to please that booty.
