Jack White Not Scoring ‘The Lone Ranger’ After All

Jack White has bailed on ‘The Lone Ranger.’ Back in April, we reported that White had signed on to compose the score for Walt Disney Pictures production, and that none other than director Gore Verbinski and star Johnny Deep (Tonto) had recruited the singer. But due to a change in the film’s production, White has been replaced by Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer, the man behind the music for such hits as ‘Gladiator’ and ‘The Dark Knight.’

A statement from Disney repeats much of what we just said:

“Oscar winner Hans Zimmer, the musical mastermind behind Disney’s and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ has signed on to compose the score for ‘The Lone Ranger.’ Jack White, who had originally been contemplated to score and has contributed several pieces of music to the production, was logistically unavailable due to scheduling conflicts that arose when the film’s release moved to July of 2013.”

As Consequence of Sound points out, with White already having turned in some completed music, it’s possible some will end up in the film, which opens in theaters July 3.
