Johnny Depp's planned trip to China to promote his latest movie The Lone Ranger has been cancelled as studio bosses scramble to pin down a release date in the country. The actor and his co-star Armie Hammer were due to fly to the Asian country on 15 July (13) but the visit has been postponed because Disney chiefs still do not know when the adventure blockbuster will open there. Director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer were also set to go along on the promotional trip to China, where government officials are known for placing strict regulations on the films that can be screened. A statement issued to TheWrap.com reads, "As part of their promotional activities for The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp and producer Jerry Bruckheimer plan to visit China in early September closer to an expected release date."
