Update! According to Entertainment Weekly, talks between Ryan Gosling and Disney have indeed fallen apart due to the scheduling issues we mention below. The actor has passed on the role, but keep suggesting your favorites!
Ryan Gosling ('The Notebook', 'Lars and the Real Girl') is reportedly in talks with Disney Studios to star as the lead role in Gore Verbinski's 'The Lone Ranger'. If he signs onto the film, he will be playing opposite Johnny Depp who is already attached to play Tonto.
The adventure film will tell the origin of The Lone Ranger - an ex-Texas Ranger and the sole survivor of a group of Rangers (including his father and brother) who were beset upon by a gang of thugs and slaughtered. Half-dead, he is found by a wise Native American named Tonto, who nurses him back to health. Armed with silver bullets, The Lone Ranger dons a mask and white hat and teams up with Tonto to bring the responsible parties to justice.
Scheduling issues may be a concern for Gosling, who is preparing to star in the 'Logan's Run' remake which begins production this fall. His is one of several names that have been bandied about to play the iconic character, including the likes of George Clooney and Timothy Olyphant. Who would you choose?
