Small Town, Big Screen

Classic film, The Lone Ranger, is being remade in Creede.

By |

Hollywood is headed to the sleepy town of Creede, Colorado, to remake the Western classic The Lone Ranger. Director Gore Verbinski—whose recent work includes Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End—is at the helm, and Johnny Depp is on board to play Tonto. A publicist for Jerry Bruckheimer Films was tight-lipped, but did offer two tantalizing details: Creede—an old mining town northwest of Alamosa—was the best possible choice to film specific sequences in the movie; and about 300 crew members will work in Creede, which will almost double its population. Locals expect filming to start this month.
