UPDATE: THE LONE RANGER To Undergo Reshoots; Will The Film Be A Flop?
Disney's The Lone Ranger will NOT be undergoing more shooting later this month, and another character is NOT being written in. Additionally, Wall Street analyst Richard Greenfield believes that the film will be anything but a hit at the box office.
UPDATE: Disney has reached out to comment on the report about The Lone Ranger undergoing reshoots, saying that it is "100% untrue" and that no reshoots are in the works.
Moviehole has learned that Disney's upcoming action Western The Lone Ranger, which stars Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, will be undergoing more reshoots at the end of the month. The Gore Verbinski-directed film was in production for several months last year, but it appears that work on the movie isn't done yet. Apparently, they're even writing in another character, which is unusual at this late stage. Due to Disney's prior record with live action films (notably last year's John Carter) and multiple problems in its development since its greenlight, many have been expecting it to be a bomb at the box office. Now, Wall Street analyst Richard Greenfield has offered his predictions for some box office results for this year. While he believes that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (out November 22nd) will be the biggest movie of 2013, he predicts that The Lone Ranger will be the year's biggest disappointment, and that people are unlikely going to get pumped for it. Additionally, Greenfield believes that Warner Bros.' Superman reboot, Man Of Steel (out June 14th), will be a big success at the box office, since online audiences are already very excited by it.
The Lone Ranger stars Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Helena Bonham Carter and Ruth Wilson. The film is set to hit theaters July 3rd, 2013.
