The 30-year-old actor is reportedly in talks to take the main role in the Gore Verbinski-helmed movie, and play opposite Johnny Depp.

Ryan Gosling may join "The Lone Ranger". The Wrap reports that the 30-year-old actor is in negotiations with Walt Disney Pictures to take the titular role, and play opposite Johnny Depp who will star as Tonto, the titular hero's sidekick.

Previously, George Clooney was rumored taking the title character. However, producer Jerry Bruckheimer denied the speculation, insisting that the film should find its director first. At that time, Bruckheimer said, "We haven't decided who is going to play the 'Lone Ranger' yet. Get a director first and then figure it out."

Gosling was nominated for Best Actor at 2010 Golden Globe Awards for his role in "Blue Valentine". Recently, he has completed filming comedy movie "Crazy, Stupid, Love." in which he stars as Jacob Palmer. He additionally will be seen in "The Ides of March" where he stars opposite Evan Rachel Wood.

Adapted from George W. Trendle's classic old-time radio and early television show of the same name, "The Lone Ranger" revolves around a masked Texas Ranger who survived the deathly ambush by a gang of outlaws. Accompanied by his native American assistant Tonto and white horse named Silver, he sets his sight to bring every outlaw in the Old West to justice. "Pirates of the Caribbean" writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio will pen the adaptation.
