Barry Pepper and Dwight Yoakam also added to cast

Helena Bonham Carter looks set to join the cast of the big screen adaptation of The Lone Ranger.

The BAFTA-winning actress will join Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in the film to be directed by Pirates of the Caribbean director, Gore Verbinski.

According to HollywoodReporter.com, Bonham Carter is being lined up to play the owner of a brothel.

If she does sign up, The Lone Ranger will mark the fifth time she has worked with Johnny Depp, after sharing billing with the actor in Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Corpse Bride.


The other two actors set to join the cast, Dwight Yoakam and Barry Pepper, have previously worked together in the Western setting, with both appearing in The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.

It is thought that Yoakam will play the chief villain in The Lone Ranger, while, Barry Pepper, most recently seen in the Coen‘s remake of True Grit, will play ‘the leader of the seventh cavalry’.

Helena Bonham Carter can currently be seen in the final Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two.

The Lone Ranger is due for release in UK on December 21 2012.
