After Disney nearly pulled the plug on the big-budget adaptation of The Lone Ranger, the production is now a go. Director Gore Verbinski, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer all agreed to take pay cuts, and Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio reworked the script by Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road) to excise some of the more costly aspects. All in all, the creatives involved were able to bring the budget down from $250 million to $215 million (which is still an insane amount of money for a western).

While the behind-the-scenes drama is well documented, very little about the actual movie is known. Depp recently talked a bit about the project and elaborated on the direction the film will take. He also touched on the Dr. Seuss biopic that he’s producing (and possibly starring in), revealing that the project will include some of Seuss’ beloved characters. Hit the jump to see what Depp had to say.
