They're gonna need a silver bullet to get 'em out of this one.

E! News has an exclusive photo from the set of The Lone Ranger, and by the looks of things, Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, playing our titular hero and his Native American companion respectively, find themselves having a hair-raising time as the latter is chained to the top of a train!

Talk about a balancing act.

First look: Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in The Lone Ranger

The cliffhanger-type scenario is part of an elaborate fight scene the duo have been shooting for Disney's big-budget action-adventure-western, reimagined by Gore Verbinski, who directed Depp in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
