"I don't pretend to be captain weird. I just do what I do."

At Comic-Con, Disney showed the first trailer from Johnny’s upcoming film THE LONE RANGER. It’s not online yet. Fingers crossed that we’ll get something soon! In the meantime, here is a description of it from Entertainment Weekly:
The Big Revelations: Johnny Depp’s voice as Tonto, speaking one line in broken English: “There come a time, Kemosabe … when good man must wear mask.”
Footage Screened: Director Gore Verbinski previously worked with Depp on the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, which frequently relied on comedy and slapstick. Whatever is in the overall movie, there was none of that in the minute of Lone Ranger footage previewed at Comic-Con, which had a heavier, more ominous tone.
Amid scenes of the transcontinental railroad coming together in the mid-1860s, we hear the voice of Tom Wilkinson, playing an unspecified character – who clearly sounds megalomaniacal. “From the time of Alexander the Great, no man could travel faster than the horse that carried him. … Not anymore. … Imagine time and space under the mastery of man — power that makes emperors and kings look like fools. … Whoever controls this, controls the future.”
It’s hard to piece together much plot from the clips shown, but we see Armie Hammer as the title character, looking disheveled and intense. There’s a bit of gunslinging, and we see Depp’s white-and-black painted Native American warrior hanging beneath a moving train as he uncouples one of the cars.
Helena Bonham Carter turns up in elegant gentlewoman’s finery, and we see a bit of blood splashing on the ground, and some massive train accidents.
Johnny Depp and Douglas Brinkley are teaming up to edit “House of Earth”, an unpublished novel by folk singer Woody Guthrie. It will be released next spring and will be around 250 pages long.

The manuscript, which Guthrie finished in 1947, follows a West Texas couple who, in their effort to build adobe homes as protection against treacherous weather, fight against banks and lumber companies.
In an essay for The New York Times Book Review, Mr. Brinkley and Mr. Depp write:
Pitched somewhere between rural realism and proletarian protest, somewhat static in terms of narrative drive, “House of Earth” nonetheless offers a searing portrait of the Panhandle and its marginalized Great Depression residents. Guthrie successfully mixes Steinbeck’s narrative verve with D. H. Lawrence’s openness to erotic exploration. When the Library of Congress folklorist Alan Lomax read the first chapter he was profoundly impressed. For months Lomax encouraged Guthrie to finish the book, saying he’d “considered dropping everything I was doing” just to get the novel published. “It was quite simply the best material I’d ever seen written about that section of the country,” he wrote.
