My heart was light and gay when the news broke two months ago that Jerry Bruckheimer‘s The Lone Ranger had been kibboshed by Disney for being too costly. Now that the show is back on and set to open in May 2013, I’m sliding into the hole again. Barring some inspirational miracle, The Lone Ranger will primarily be about Bruckheimer, Depp, Armie Hammer, Gore Verbinksi and Disney stockholders making piles of money, and the rest of us submitting to a slow spiritual poisoning through IV tubes attached to our seats.
