Yep, apparently the movie was too expensive for them.

I had a feeling that it would be canned sooner or later.

[up]Yeah, I kind of wanted to see this.

Oh, well. I still have Rango.

[down]Hooray! Those were quick negotiations, though.

Actually it's back on now but cuts will be made to the budget.
I am astonished and baffled why they approved a 240 million dollar budget in the first place. Why in God's name did they think they needed a budget that big? Yes, yes, filming on site. . . but the "old west" is *right nearby*. Its not like doing on-site filming in downtown London, or the Amazon jungle.

For comparison, True Grit cost $38 million.

One of the reasons the film was so expensive is that it would have had werewolves featured in the film.

They'd better get rid of the damn werewolves. That is all.

I mean... I like me some lycanthropy and all, but they have no place in a Lone Ranger movie.

Yeah, as much I would love a Lone Ranger film, if they're gonna make one like that then I probably wouldn't want to watch it. What I really want is a spaghetti western knock off of The Lone Ranger.

[up] Didn't Terence Hill do one of those?
"Not crazy, just weird."
Well . . . . it would explain those silver bullets. . .

I really don't know what to think. For one, they don't really belong in the Lone Ranger, and yet. . .I'm having visions of a werewolf gunslinger.

So, that would make this Cowboys and Werewolves

Werewolf Gunslingers. . . . Oh God. Do want.

Conflicted here.

I'm torn. On one hand this seems a little too silly for me but on the other hand this also sounds pretty awesome.

Not to mention that werewolves in hollywood movies need to take a level in badass after what the Twilight movies did to them...

Werewolves???

Okay, I don't even know that much about the Lone Ranger, and I still burst out laughing when I read that. Disney, Disney, Disney...
"Not crazy, just weird."

Actually, Disney had nothing to do with the werewolves. The filmmaker's did.

Still, werewolves

Here's what one of the writers had to say:

It was never going to be a semi-traditional western...it was never going to be Zorro. It was going to be a Tonto show mainly. Tonto as the top dog and more dominant than the Lone Ranger. Tonto and the Indian spirits like Obi Wan Kenobi and the force. The driving engine was going to be Native American occult aspects worked in with werewolves and special effects. But flavored with doses of Native American spirituality in a serious way.

Why do I get the feeling that they've never heard of this little movie? Also, "Tonto show." Damn you, Rule of Johnny Depp.

I'm glad it was canned. The Lone Ranger was able to exist in a bygone age where not only were Westerns popular but people were able to accept a black and white story easily. Nowadays we can't take something like that so seriously so we either need to make it Darker and Edgier or add a random element in order to make it appeal to what Hollywood considers the Lowest Common Denominator, ergo, a fantastical element to ape the success of Twilight.

In any case, Disney of all people was the wrong people to handle the project. I wouldn't handle the Evil Empire with a damn thing, outside of Pixar.

If they continue moving the film forward, the film won't have werewolves but it will have the "biggest train sequence in history"

And again, it was the script writer's idea for werewolves, not Disney's. This film has been on the production burner since 2007, before Twilight even came to screens.

Guys, did you hear? They're going to put Zombies, fucking ZOMBIES in the Pirates of the Carribean movie. Seriously. Zombies. RUINED. FOR. EVER.

Werewolves would have been weird in a Lone Ranger movie but at the same time I'd be perfectly willing to give them some slack just to see where it goes. I mean, wild west with werewolves, I can't be the only person who's imagination isn't at least a little piqued by that idea.

Even with werewolves though $240 million? Holy, fucking, shit.

Disney was going to make The Lone Ranger?
