    After months of speculation regarding the big budget blockbuster The Lone Ranger, fans were disappointed when production on the film, barely begun, was abruptly shut down. Whispers of concerns over budget surfaced, as industry watchers scratched their heads, and wondered about the fate of the film.

    Now, word comes via The Wrap, that Disney is in talks with “all parties” to determine if production will go forward. An anonymous source stated that a decision should be reached shortly after Labor Day – in other words, any minute now.

    Many believe that Disney isn’t interested in discontinuing the movie altogether; rather, they are hoping to rein in the budget, estimated to be well over $250 million.

    The film is set to star Disney’s most successful actor to date – Johnny Depp - as Tonto, with rising star Armie Hammer cast in the titular role. Gore Verbinski is on board to direct, while Jerry Bruckheimer will (hopefully) produce.

    The film reunites Verbinski, Bruckheimer, and Depp, who struck box office platinum with the first three Pirates of the Caribbeanfilms (Verbinski did not direct the fourth and most recent installment in the franchise.)

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    With the parties involved track record recently with Disney I think making too many alterations on this production would be a mistake.
