My friend Randy e-mailed a photo to me Friday morning of an old Western-style train car. He told me the new Disney movie version of “The Lone Ranger” starring Johnny Depp as Tonto is shooting right next door to his office in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the train car was plainly visible.
I said, what a coincidence because “The Lone Ranger” is shooting right across the street from my office here in Arcadia too — at least they are setting up a giant green screen (it’s actually blue) for a second unit to film some visual effects shots for the movie for a few days once they get finished with the structure. Most of the principal photography for the movie scheduled to open on July 3, 2013, has been in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and Utah all year. (Armie Hammer has the title Kimosabe role.)
