Now that Jack White has his first solo outing in the can, the Third Man Records head has sights on another first: film scoring. As Variety reports, White has been tapped by Walt Disney Pictures to provide the score for their upcoming Gore Verbinski-directed The Lone Ranger. The film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, had this to say: “Jack’s an amazing songwriter with a unique style. We’re thrilled to hear his fresh take on the [Lone Ranger theme] ‘William Tell Overture’.”

Though White has contributed to films in the past (2008’s Bond film Quantum of Solace, 2007’s Cold Mountain), The Lone Ranger will be his first foray into scores. You can thank Verbinski and Johnny Depp, the man playing the Lone Ranger’s “sidekick”, Tonto. “Gore hatched the idea and Johnny was thrilled with it,” Bruckheimer tells Variety. “We’re all very excited to have him on board.”

With Armie Hammer in the iconic title role, filming for The Lone Ranger is currently underway in New Mexico with an eye on a May 13th, 2013 release.
