The Lone Ranger. But With Werewolves. Right.

This story shows how Hollywood is stupid and hateful. From Dark Horizons:

“It was always going to be a big Bruckheimer CG movie with traditional Bruckheimer elements… it was never going to be a semi-traditional western…it was never going to be Zorro. It was going to be a Tonto show mainly. Tonto as the top dog and more dominant than the Lone Ranger. Tonto and the Indian spirits like Obi Wan Kenobi and the force. The driving engine was going to be Native American occult aspects worked in with werewolves and special effects. But flavored with doses of Native American spirituality in a serious way.”

There is nothing good in that despicable paragraph. Why even make a Lone Ranger movie? Why have werewolves in it? If you want to make a genre mash-up (which can be fun), why not have someone write an original Ye Olde West horror/action movie? Why jam a musty “property” into the mix? And Johnny Depp as Tonto? There aren’t any First Nations actors out there? Or were they all killed off in Cowboys And Aliens?

This whole situation is a matter-annihilating sphere of anti-creativity, is what this is. Boo! Booooo!
