“White Stripes” Guitarist Jack White to Score Disney’s THE LONE RANGER

Walt Disney Studios has just announced that Jack White has been chosen to score their new LONE RANGER film.

Well this is definitely an interesting choice for a Disney score…

Walt Disney Studios has just announced that Jack White has been chosen to score their new LONE RANGER film.

A press release from the studio reads:

“The Walt Disney Studios announced today at CinemaCon that Jack White will write, produce and perform the score for Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ highly anticipated The Lone Ranger. White, who today released his first solo album “Blunderbuss” to critical acclaim, is a musician, singer, songwriter and producer who first achieved notoriety as the lead guitarist and vocalist of the rock band The White Stripes and then as a member of The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather.  The Lone Ranger will mark White’s first foray into feature film scoring. The Lone Rangerdirected by Gore Verbinski and featuring Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as John Reid, the Lone Ranger, is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption. The Lone Ranger is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and hits theaters May 31, 2013.”

White is known not only for his work as the guitarist and lead singer of the White Stripes, but for an amazing solo career (if you haven’t seen IT MIGHT GET LOUD yet, go right now).  Put him together with Johnny Depp’s insane vision of Tanto, and I think we have a very interesting movie on our hands…
