all of the written accolades for the series are bang on
With the amazing success of the Marvel Super Hero Franchise it's about time for a proper remake of The Lone Ranger. The 1981 attempt called The Legend of the Lone Ranger was an absolute disaster. But the most recent effort starring Johnny Depp was nothing more than a western version of his Pirates of the Caribean franchise and a total waste of talent and money. Any true history buff who wants to see this legend remade will tell you it has to be a "serious" attempt and must be filmed with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels respected and indeed honoured for their place in history - they lived the characters in real life. A proper remake should be in the new trilogy format with unknown characters in the two leading roles and the first has to start with the killing of the Ranger patrol. There is no better time to do the right thing - it has been messed up too many times over the years and its return to the big screen is long overdue! Somebody please make it happen!!
