Disney preps 'Lone Ranger' remake

27 March 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio are going from "shiver me timbers!" to "Hi-yo Silver!"

The writing duo, best known for their work on the Pirates of the Caribbean films, are in final negotiations to write a live-action big-screen adaptation of The Lone Ranger for Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

The project will be made by Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films in association with Entertainment Rights.

Ranger, owned by Classic Media, began life as a 1930s radio show. Its popularity led to movie serials, TV shows, comic strips and comic books, toys, novels and more.

The hero's origin story begins with a group of Texas Rangers chasing down a gang of outlaws led by Butch Cavendish. The gang ambushes the Rangers, seemingly killing them all. One survivor is found, however, by an American Indian named Tonto, who nurses him back to health. The Ranger, donning a mask and riding a white stallion named Silver, teams up with Tonto to bring the unscrupulous gang and others of that ilk to justice. »
