Not counting �The Lone Ranger,� 2012�s �Dark Shadows� cost $150 million but grossed only $80 million, 2011�s �The Rum Diary� made $13 million on a $45 million budget, and that same year �The Tourist� tanked, recouping $67 million on a $100 million budget. But not everyone thinks Depp is in trouble. Producer Gary Michael Walters argues �The Lone Ranger� won�t stand in Depp�s way long term, but agreed it�s time he ditched the mascara and got back to meatier roles. �Johnny is an extraordinary actor and will remain a hugely bankable international star despite the severe under performance of �The Lone Ranger. � Some of the blame does need to be borne by the director Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp for how they reinterpreted the story and the relationship between Tonto and The Lone Ranger, and there are signs of some audience pushback on Depp�s pattern of choosing highly costumed and heavily made up eccentric characters,� he said. �It would be wonderful to see Depp doing more grounded, realistic roles like �Chocolat� or �Donnie Brasco� or �Blow,� where he can be so brilliant and lose himself in a character without all the external accoutrements. � Back in the day, Depp did cement himself as one of the greats with stellar performances in independent/low budget productions like �What�s Eating Gilbert Grape� and �Edward Scissorhands,� but a source connected to the star told us his fame has made it difficult for anyone with a hearty, fulfilling script outside of the big studio circle to even get it into his hands. Another industry insider agreed, explaining: �He is insulated by agents and a long litany of associates. His food chain is massive. When you are that big you can tend to generate project ideas yourself or take what the studio or big directors offer because those offers come with a big check. � Meanwhile, we�re told the mood at Disney has been on the somber side since the disappointing debut of the costly �Lone Ranger.
