Lone Ranger Production Shutdown

Seems like Disney's Lone Ranger won't be riding into the sunset. It would have been nice to see Johnny Depp in the role of Lone Ranger's companion, Tonto.

Here's an excerpt from Deadline.com:
Disney has shut down production on The Lone Ranger, the Gore Verbinski-directed film that was to star Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the title character. Jerry Bruckheimer is the producer. I'm told this all just happened, and Disney pulled the plug because the budget, which I've heard the filmmakers were trying to reduce from $250, wasn't close to the $200 million that Disney wanted to spend.

This really saddens me, because after watching Cowboys and Aliens I was in a mood for another western.
