Ryan Gosling Won’t Saddle up as The Lone Ranger After All

Despite earlier reports that Ryan Gosling was “in talks” to star as the masked hero in Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s “The Lone Ranger” reboot alongside Johnny Depp, the actor’s reps have a different story — he ain’t.

EW quotes Gosling’s rep as saying that the reports were “premature, as Gosling’s schedule was not yet firmed up,” whatever that means. Of course, reps have been known to lie. Actually, reps like A LOT. But perhaps not this time.

Or maybe this time, too.

Either/or. Gosling is already scheduled to star in the “Logan’s Run” remake, and I’m definitely excited to see him in Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive”.
