Over the weekend, singer-actor Dwight Yoakam rode into the sunset due to scheduling conflicts with the production of â€œThe Lone Ranger.â€ However, Walt Disney Pictures immediately replaced the singing cowboy with actor William Fichtner.
Fichtner will play the bad guy in the film. The actor recently completed filming sci-fi â€œElysuimâ€ with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. He appeared in a few episodes of â€œEntourageâ€ and starred in â€œDrive Angryâ€ last year.
Walt Disney Pictures will restart the production of â€œThe Lone Rangerâ€ this month. The Gore Verbinski-directed film will star Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.
The film is scheduled for a theater release on May 31st next year.
