Ugh. Do we really have to wait until next May for this?

While it was more than generous of producer Jerry Bruckheimer to tweet this brand new photo from The Lone Ranger set showing Armie Hammer as the titular hero and Johnny Depp (sporting pretty intense makeup along with some eye-catching headgear) as his loyal pal Tonto, it definitely has us longing for more.

Of course, we really can't complain considering how cameras almost never got rolling on this project in the first place.

After all, it was initially scrapped due to budget concerns before finally being given the go-ahead to begin shooting last month.

Directed by newly minted Oscar winner Gore Verbinski (Rango, Pirates of the Caribbean), The Lone Ranger also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper and William Fichtner.
