Jack White to Score Disney's Lone Ranger Film Adaptation
Jack White is a busy man these days. Not only has he just released his first solo album, Blunderbuss, but, according to Variety, the Grammy-winning rocker has been tapped to write, produce, and perform the score for Disney's film adaptation of The Lone Ranger.
The project will mark the first feature score for White. As Bruckheimer told Variety, "Jack's an amazing songwriter with a unique style. We're thrilled to hear his fresh take on the William Tell Overture."
The film, based on the popular 1950s TV series, stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer and will be directed by Pirates of the Caribbean helmer Gore Verbinski. The film is currently shooting in New Mexico and is set to be released in theaters on May 31, 2013.
Regarding tapping White for the project, Bruckheimer added, "Gore hatched the idea and Johnny [Depp] was thrilled with it. We're all very excited to have [White] on board."
