The Lone Ranger” is riding again. The pricey Disney movie (with a $250 million budget or more, depending on whom you ask) is nearing the end of one of the longest principal-photography shoots in recent memory.

Filming on the Johnny Depp starrer began February 28 in New Mexico and is expected to wrap at the end of September, for a total of between 140 and 150 shooting days. (The on-set death September 21 of a welder who was preparing an underwater action sequence for the film is not expected to impact the timeline.)

Many who have worked with director Gore Verbinski (the first three Pirates of the Caribbean), whose pursuit of authenticity and scope caused the construction of massive sets and real working trains, say they aren’t surprised by the length. “He likes to shoot and shoot and shoot,” says one insider.

But some delays were beyond Disney’s control: Wind and dust storms damaged the sets, and Johnny reportedly was injured in a fall from a horse.

The crew member who drowned last week while preparing for an underwater action scene on the “The Lone Ranger” set was identified Monday as Michael Andrew Bridger, 48, of Redondo Beach.

Although an autopsy was pending, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said there were indications that Bridger died of a heart attack Friday while working in scuba gear in a water tank. Bridger was working on the Walt Disney Productions film “The Lone Ranger,” starring Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the masked man, although filming was not taking place when he was found in the water.

When other production workers noticed that bubbles were not coming from Bridger’s scuba equipment, they pulled him out of the water. He was pronounced dead after being airlifted to a hospital.

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are seen filming on the set of “The Lone Ranger” in Santa Anita. The scene shows a house burning and Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger comes to the rescue of Johnny Depp who plays his sidekic Tonto. Spoiler alert!

I don’t know when these pictures were taken and since the quality is really bad, we can’t see much of the people in them, but I decided to upload them to the gallery though.

    Authorities are investigating the apparent drowning of a crew member on the set of forthcoming Johnny Depp film The Lone Ranger, near Los Angeles.

    The unnamed 48-year-old diver is thought to have suffered a heart attack while cleaning out a pool that was going to be used in the film. He was pronounced dead on Friday according to the coroner’s spokesman.

    Walt Disney studios said: “Our hearts and thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues at this time.” Spokesman Paul Roeder added in a statement: “Our full support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this terrible event.”

    Police revealed the man had been wearing scuba equipment to carry out maintenance on a deep pool on a ranch near Palmdale, in the desert north of Los Angeles, where the Western is being filmed. It is thought he was preparing a tank for an underwater scene to be shot at a later date.

    JohnnyDeppWeb‘s prayers and thoughts are with his beloved family, friends and colleagues. May he rest in peace!

    Showing solidarity for a man he believes was wrongly convicted, Johnny Depp attended “Damien Echols In Conversation, With Johnny Depp” at Barnes & Noble Union Square in New York City on Friday (September 21).

    Looking a bit like a hipster cowboy, the “Dark Shadows” star donned a brown leather jacket; black, red, and gray scarf; gray trousers; and a black cowboy hat with a beaded band. The 49-year-old actor supported Echols, one of the famous West Memphis Three, who was promoting a book detailing his life after being released from death row.

    That same day, a crew member on Johnny’s new film, “The Lone Ranger,” tragically drowned while preparing a water tank for an upcoming scene. Law enforcement told TMZ that the worker was pulled from the tank only after another on the film crew noticed there weren’t any bubbles surfacing from the diver’s gear.

    Johnny Depp has a close relationship with his nephew Billy Rassel and has even collaborated with him on a music project.

    ‘We interact just like any other family, but I guess the best way to describe our relationship is that of anyone else who has an uncle that likes to do shit with you that your parents don’t approve of,’ Billy tells Perez Hilton. ‘Almost like brothers.’

    Gossip guru Perez Hilton reveals Johnny, 49, does his stuff on Billy’s song Street Runners under the alias Mr Stench. You can find the video in which you can hear his voice below.

    Johnny Depp is one of the only guys out there who seems to dispute that whole “jack of all trades, master of none” thing. The actor never makes a misstep, and the guys in Aerosmith agree.

    While recording their latest album, “Music From Another Dimension“, Johnny recorded some backup vocals for the guys on the track “Freedom Fighter”. Aerosmith open up about how their collabo came about:

    “[Depp] came down [to the studio] with one of his guitars and it got late, and it came time for the background vocals. We asked him if he’d sit around the microphone. He did and that’s how he ended up on the song.” Easy as that, folks. Just be Johnny Depp and the world is your oyster.

    Johnny Depp goes shirtless as he shoots some scenes dressed in costume as Tonto for his upcoming film “The Lone Ranger” on Wednesday (September 19) in Arcadia, Calif.

    The 49-year-old actor recently spoke at TIFF about what drew him to the documentary West of Memphis to MTV News.

    “I believe it was Henry Rollins, also a longtime supporter and friend of Damien’s [Echols], who said it, and it’s absolutely true: it could have been any of us,” Johnny said. “Because, what, you look different? [The authorities] put their eyeball on Damien and didn’t take it off, even though everything around them — they didn’t look at the insane amount of holes in the case. They just looked at the guy with the black T-shirt and the long black hair. It was a witch hunt.”

    “The Lone Ranger” will be released on July 3rd in 2013! Keep visiting for more updates on Johnny’s upcoming movie project.

    In 1993, the lives of three young teenagers — Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin — were changed forever when they were convicted of a crime they didn’t commit: the brutal murder of three boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Almost 20 years behind bars and countless voices of support later, the West Memphis Three are free at last, with their story chronicled in the Peter Jackson-produced documentary “West of Memphis.”

    Over the years, Echols and his peers found their cause championed by famous faces including Eddie Vedder, Henry Rollins and Johnny Depp. At the Toronto International Film Festival, Johnny appeared alongside Echols and spoke with MTV News about why the case of the West Memphis Three was something he found himself drawn to.

    “I believe it was Henry Rollins, also a longtime supporter and friend of Damien’s, who said it, and it’s absolutely true: it could have been any of us,” Johnny said of the circumstances surrounding the West Memphis Three’s wrongful imprisonment. “Because, what, you look different? [The authorities] put their eyeball on Damien and didn’t take it off, even though everything around them — they didn’t look at the insane amount of holes in the case. They just looked at the guy with the black T-shirt and the long black hair. It was a witch hunt.”

    With Echols, Misskelley and Baldwin finally out of prison, the men, now in their 30s, have a lot of world to catch up to. “Here’s a kid who went to prison wrongfully convicted. He went in at the age of 18 and came out at the age of 36. Suddenly you can take photographs with your phone. So much has changed,” Depp observed of Echols’ current experience. “By the time you came out, it’s ‘The Jetsons.’ It’s a whole ‘nother world.”

    I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
