Walt Disney Pictures has announced that Grammy-winning Jack White will write, produce and perform the score for The Lone Ranger.
Jerry Bruckheimer says:
Jack’s an amazing songwriter with a unique style. We’re thrilled to hear his fresh take on the William Tell Overture.
The film stars Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, and is based on the 1950’s television series. While this is Jack White’s first full score, he did write a song for 2008’s Quantum of Solace and performed a track on 2007’s Cold Mountain.
The Lone Ranger will premiere in theaters May 31, 2013.
