Just knowing Mike Newell is directing gives me high expectations for this film. He also directed Four Weddings and A Funeral.

I thought Clooney wasn't interested in the lead. I was trying to think of other possibilities for the Lone Ranger. It would be great to see Johnny work with his friends Nicolas Cage and Sean Penn, but neither of them seems right for the part.

I've heard Viggo Mortensen, Christian Bale, and Josh Brolin mentioned. Anyone have any opinions?

I am finally watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy (having borrowed my sister's boxed set), and you're right, he would be good.

Nobody's asking me, but Leo wouldn't be terrible, either. Wouldn't you love to see them work together again?
