THE LONE RANGER: Concept Art From Johnny Depp Flop & An Abandoned TV Project
The Lone Ranger is epic... an epic failure. It's expected to lose the Mouse House $150 to 200 million smackaroonies. Ouch! There is a bright spot, we got some cool key frame art for the film, and early concept art developed for a television show idea. Neato!
After Gore Verbinski's putrid film, The Lone Ranger, was released concept artist, Keron Grant revealed that he had worked on a proposed Lone Ranger television show for producer Eric Calderon. Hollywood ended up seeing the artwork for the revamped Lone Ranger and some of it influenced Disney's film.
