There was a rumor that Ryan Gosling might play the Lone Ranger to Johnny Depp’s Tonto in a Disney project. Knowing that Gosling is already committed to starring in the Logan’s Run remake, it wasn’t really convincing.
Now EW has gotten confirmation that it won’t work out after all.
His rep told them that he won’t be taking the part, claiming that “Gosling’s schedule was not yet firmed up.”
The Lone Ranger isn’t set for release until 2014, so they’ve got plenty of time to find someone else. Who do you think can join Depp and director Gore Verbinski?
