End of the line for LEGO Lone Ranger

Lone RangerThe possibility of future Lone Ranger LEGO sets look increasingly slim after it was announced that Disney expect to lose around $190 on the film.

The film, directed by Gore Verbinski, starring Armie Hammer in the lead role with Johnny Depp as Tonto has received largely negative reviews from critics and box office takings ($86.9m) in the first week were poor in comparison to Dispicable Me 2 ($141.2m) which opened the same weekend in the US.

The film which ran to an estimated cost of $225m is unlikely to be optioned for a sequel which is a shame as some of the LEGO sets have been among the best of the year so far.
