FARMINGTON — New Mexico may soon be ringing with the cry: "Hi-yo Silver, away!"That's right, The Lone Ranger is coming back to the Southwest with his mask, silver bullets and penchant for fighting crime.
A recent casting call in Shiprock for a movie titled "Silver Bullet" sparked an Internet rumor that the name was actually the production title for Disney Studio's "The Lone Ranger."
Those rumors are true.
Agencies and officials directly connected with the movie aren't spilling the beans, but the New Mexico Film Office confirmed that "Silver Bullet" is indeed "The Lone Ranger."
"I can't comment on whether that's the case or not," said Mark Amo, director of the Phil L. Thomas Performing Arts Center, where the Nov. 19 casting call took place. "I will tell you this: The very first phone call I got was from Silver Springs (Colorado) and the person said I know what movie this really is.'"
Since the casting call was sent out in October under the misleading name, the question of whether it was "The Lone Ranger" went viral across film industry websites.
The popular blog site Sindication claimed to have a copy of the casting report, and numerous other industry websites reported that "Silver Bullet" was indeed the eagerly anticipated Disney film staring Arnie Hammer as the masked rider and Johnny Depp as Tonto.
"I really can't comment on that," said Elizabeth Gabel, owner of Elizabeth Gabel Casting, the company in charge of the recent casting call. read more: http://www.daily-times.com/ci_19461593
