    Ah, the saga of "The Lone Ranger" continues to ride on and in case you've been away here's the short version. Seeing "Cowboys & Aliens" tank, contrasted with the extraordinary $250-75 million budget that was in play for "The Lone Ranger," Disney panicked and yanked the cord on the film, sending the ...

    Will 'The Lone Ranger' Ride On Without Gore Verbinski?

    Reporting from D23, Deadline noted a curious omission in comments by Disney exec Rich (not Rick) Ross regarding the currently-stalled "The Lone Ranger." “I’m hoping to do it," he says, "I’m certainly hoping. I think it’s a compelling story and no one wants to work with Jerry [Bruckheimer] and Johnny...

    Universal Drops Gore Verbinski's 'Clue' But Project Still Moving Ahead With New Writers

    You not remember, but near the end of 2009 we made up a list of the Dumbest Movie Projects announced that year and among the them were "Battleship," "Candyland," "Monopoly" and "Clue."

    Tom Wilkinson In Talks To Join Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer In 'The Lone Ranger'

    There's nothing that can make a director look good in retrospect as someone else coming into the franchise that they birthed and messing it up even more than it already was, and that's what happened to Gore Verbinski in the last month or so. The second and third entries in the "Pirates of the Caribb...

    Armie Hammer Confirmed To Star Opposite Johnny Depp In 'The Lone Ranger'

    Perhaps it says something about the dearth of real leading men in Hollywood -- films from "Captain America" to "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Akira" have had real problems landing actors -- but Armie Hammer has had one of the fastest accelerations from unknown to movie star that we can remember...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Rango' Wrangles The Year's Highest Debut So Far with $38 Million

    CG-toons. You can’t go wrong. Even if you’re alienating viewers. While “Rango” is the first non-3D animated film of the last year or so, most were predicting a much bigger opening around $50 million or so. Still, a not-bad $38 million showing for the film this weekend, though Cinemascore audiences only rated the film a C+. Most of those negative notices are probably due to the unconventional visual style, though critics have been making comparisons to Jim Jarmusch and allusions to Hunter S. Thompson. Yeah, those references were missing from “Gnomeo and Juliet.” Still, this seems like a one-and-done affair for people not exactly associated wit...

    Review: 'Rango' Is A Sweetly Surreal Animated Western

    It's strange to think that Gore Verbinski, an accomplished visual stylist who began in commercials (he was responsible for those "Bud-weis-er" talking bullfrog ads), would want to follow up the daunting and problem-plagued back-to-back shoots of the two latter 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies with ...

    Watch: Trailer For 'Rango' Promises Loopy, Far Out Fun

    We're pretty sure that this one will require at least one viewing under the influence of certain herbs and plants, but the full length trailer for Paramount's "Rango" has arrived and it looks like a total mindfuck. In a good way.
