The Lone Ranger
Director Gore Verbinksi told MTV News about the film being focused around Tonto rather than the Lone Ranger. Verbinski said, "You've heard the Lone Ranger's story; you just haven't heard it told from this guy, and he was there." Along the same lines (and in the same article), Depp talks about Tonto, "I like the character. I think I have interesting plans for the character, and I think the film itself could be entertaining and very funny, but also I like the idea of having the opportunity to make fun of the idea of the Indian as a sidekick — which has always been [the case] throughout the history of Hollywood. The Native American has always been a second-class, third-class, fourth-class, fifth-class citizen, and I don't see Tonto that way at all. So it's an opportunity for me to salute Native Americans."
