Gore Verbinski may reunite with his “Pirates of the Caribbean” headliner Johnny Depp for the sluggishly-moving “Lone Ranger”, says Deadline.

The film, based on the classic TV series and radio serial, was first announced in 2007. “Caribbean” scribes Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio were said to be working on the script. Later that year, Johnny Depp was announced as playing Tonto (Matthew McConaughey and George Clooney have both been rumoured for the ‘Ranger’ role).

Mike Newell (“Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire”) was previously rumoured to be up for director’s duties on the flick.

In addition to the “Pirates” trilogy, Verbinski worked with Depp on the computer animated film “Rango”.

The title character is a masked Texas Ranger in the American Old West, who gallops about righting injustices with the aid of his clever, laconic Native American companion, Tonto. Tonto usually referred to the Lone Ranger as Kemo Sabe, meaning “trusty scout”. Departing on his white horse Silver, the Ranger would shout “Hi-yo, Silver, away!” as the horse galloped toward the setting sun, followed by someone asking “Who was that masked man, anyway?” “Why he’s the Lone Ranger.”
