Do we know if this still has the werewolf Twilight effect in the story, or did they finally get there heads reattached? I really hope they follow the original Lone Ranger concept.

Finally! Asians getting cast in a Hollywood film. Umm...wait a minute. Railroad workers? Never mind. :-P

They cast a caucasian to play the main Native American role, why can't they do the same for the railroad worker roles? :-P

@ Plasticman

There were never werewolves in the plot to begin with, people were jumping to conclusions because it stated that he used Silver Bullets, which the Lone Ranger DOES USE. There are not werewolves in this movie, the Lone Ranger Just Uses Silver Bullets period

Well, at least all of the asians who can't get a job on Akira can find work as extras on the Lone Ranger.
