‘The Lone Ranger’ Gets Back in the Saddle

Nigel Druitt

A self-described fanboy, Nigel has always looked at movies as entertainment first and art second. (Not that a film can't be both.) His personal Flickchart Top 20 is dominated by the likes of Frodo Baggins, Indiana Jones, Marty McFly and Christopher Nolan. Nigel is the Canadian arm of the Flickchart Blog, but try not to hold that against him. You can find him on Flickchart as johnmason, where his chart is currently undergoing a major overhaul.

    I still have no idea what about a Lone Ranger film would require a budget of even 100 million, let alone 200 million+ . Does anyone even care about the Lone Ranger?

      That’s a good point.

      Although I’m actually interested, the budget is a big question mark. I mean, you can look at what these guys did with a movie based on a theme park attraction (and then what they did with it in the two sequels), but it still makes you wonder…

      *the FIRST two sequels…

      I’m definitely interested as well, although I’m in a similar boat of not understanding the big budget attached. Could just be that it costs that much to bring in all the actors in and then the marketing blitz.
