After nearly being put to pasture due to budgetary concerns, Disney's take on the legendary Lone Ranger is now in production. Take your first look at stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in a just released pic (embedded at left) as two iconic legends from the past preparing to ride off into 21st century notoriety.

Disney is banking heavily of the Pirates of the Caribbean dream team of Depp, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Oscar-winning director Gore Verbinski to deliver another blockbuster tentpole franchise. This Long Ranger epic will chronicle the lives of Tonto (Johnny Depp), a spirit warrior on a personal quest, joins forces in a fight for justice with John Reid (Armie Hammer), a lawman who has become a masked avenger.

Will they all ride off into the box office sunset as a global hit? Find out next summer when The Lone Ranger arrives in May 2013.
