Pirates Of The Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer is set to give 1956 classic The Lne Ranger a Disney twist in a modern remake.
Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, the screenwriting pair behind the Pirates trilogy, are in final talks to reteam with Bruckheimer and Disney to bring the masked hero to the big screen, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The Lone Ranger started off as a radio show in the 1930s and spurned numerous TV spin-offs and movies, including the 1956 film starring Clayton Moore.
The story follows the adventures of the Ranger, his white stallion Silver and his American Indian sidekick Tonto, as they attempt to bring local criminals to justice.
The crusader’s last silver screen outing was in 1981′s The Legend Of The Lone Ranger – but the film bombed so badly at the box office, the movie’s star Klinton Spilsbury never worked in Hollywood again.
