We have a one-two punch of set photos for all of you Johnny Depp fans out there!
Currently in New Mexico filming Disney's Lone Ranger adaptation, Depp was captured on set in full costume as Tonto, looking far less menacing than he did in the first image tweeted by producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Here, he mugs for the camera longside Dr. Gayle Dine'Chacon, Surgeon General of the Navajo Nation.
If that's not enough, Warner Bros. has also released a new photo from the set of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows adaptation that shows Depp in full costume as his childhood hero, the vampire Barnabas Collins. Additionally, Warners released two new still images of Depp from Dark Shadows, one solo and one with Michelle Pfeiffer as the modern-day matriarch of the Collins family, Elizabeth Collins Stoddard.
Lone Ranger was written by Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe. It is currently filming under the direction of Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean, Rango). Here's the synopsis:
Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer) a man of the law, into a legend of justice — taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
