Depp’s Lone to lose £100m

Midweek Sport - - GADGET BOY -

HOL­LY­WOOD su­per­star Johnny Depp’s lat­est movie The Lone Ranger is set to lose a stag­ger­ing £100 mil­lion.

The western – with a ru­moured £200 mil­lion bud­get – has been a crit­i­cal and box-of­fice disas­ter in the US.

Wall Street fi­nan­cial ex­perts be­lieve the flick – where Depp, 50, ( above) plays Na­tive Amer­i­can hero Tonto – will now lose an ab­so­lute for­tune for Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures.

The ad­ven­ture – which also stars Ar­mie Ham­mer and He­lena Bon­ham Carter – took just £30m at the Yank box-of­fice last week­end.

Fi­nan­cial an­a­lyst David Miller in­sisted the film’s earn­ings were a “mas­sive dis­ap­point­ment.”
