Disney predicts a $160-$190 million write down next quarter on box-office flop "The Lone Ranger." 

The company made the announcement during its Q3 earnings call.  

"The Lone Ranger" cost the studio an estimated $215+ million with additional money for marketing and faced multiple delays from the studio including a cancellation scare back in 2011.

The film, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, debuted to a weak $29 million three-day opening weekend— less than that of last year's "John Carter" ($30.2 million). 

Analysts originally estimated the film to bring in near $60-$70 million upon its box-office debut. 

Currently, the film has earned $175.6 million worldwide. The film has failed to break $100 million domestically.  

After its last blockbuster bomb, "John Carter," Disney originally predicted near a $200 million write off on the film 

In Q2 2012, Disney's operating income saw a loss of $84 million in part to "John Carter."
