Jack White is set to score his first film with Disney’s upcoming The Lone Ranger, according to Variety. The film is set to be directed by Gore Verbinski, who is best known for his work with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. The film is set for a May 13, 2013 release.
Although this is White’s first score, he’s already contributed songs to films, including “Another Way to Die” in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace and several tracks to 2003’s Cold Mountain.
“Jack’s an amazing songwriter with a unique style,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Variety. “We’re thrilled to hear his fresh take on [The Lone Ranger’s theme song] ‘William Tell Overture.’”
The film is also set to feature Johnny Depp as The Lone Ranger’s sidekick, Tonto, and Armie Hammer is set to play The Lone Ranger. White’s new album, Blunderbuss, was released yesterday, and you can check out our review of the album here.
In support of newly released Blunderbuss, White is set to perform at New York’s Webster Hall as part of the “American Express Unstaged” series, which will live stream on YouTube/Vevo. The kicker – Mr. Gary Oldman had directed the footage and teaser trailers for the upcoming event.
