Bringing the popular 1950s TV show to the silver screen, Hammer and Depp team up to bring justice to the Old West as outlaws on a mission. "The whole reason I wanted to play Tonto is to try to [mess] around with the stereotype of the American Indian that has been laid out through … the history of cinema," Depp told Entertainment Weekly. "Especially Tonto as the sidekick, The Lone Ranger's assistant. As you'll see, it's most definitely not that."
