Jack White To Score Disney's The Lone Ranger
The more we learn about the upcoming Disney film The Lone Ranger, the more interesting the project seems to get. Just the other day, we shared some comments Johnny Depp made about the inspiration for the make-up he's wearing for his role as Tonto. And today we learned some intriguing news on the subject of the film's score. The movie now has someone to do the score, and he could prove to bring a very interesting sound to the mix.
Disney announced today that musician and former White Stripes lead singer/guitarist Jack White is set to score The Lone Ranger. While this news was shared at CinemaCon today, which also happens to be the day White's debut solo album Blunderbuss releases. As White's known to play multiple instruments, it should be very interesting to see, or rather hear, what he contributes to the movie musically. This marks his first time composing for a film.
Among White's recent appearances, he served as the musical guest for Saturday Night Live last month. You can check out one of his performances below:
The Lone Ranger directed 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.
