Jack White has signed on to write, produce and perform the score for Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ massively anticipated adaptation of ‘The Lone Ranger.’
White, whose new solo album Blunderbuss arrived on Tuesday to spectacular reviews, will make his feature film scoring debut with the action adventure film, set to be released on May 31, 2013. He previously appeared in the film Cold Mountain alongside Nicole Kidman, and performed two songs for the soundtrack.
‘The Lone Ranger’ was directed by Gore Verbinski and stars Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as John Reid, the title character. Tonto, a Native American spirit warrior, tells the stories that transformed lawman John Ried into a legend of justice. The two must learn to work together to fight against greed and corruption.
