Jack White never stops working. The talented guitarist, who just released his solo debut ‘Blunderbuss,’ has now agreed to compose the score for Walt Disney Pictures’ ‘The Lone Ranger,’ which is now filming in Mexico and is scheduled to hit theaters in 2013.

As reported by ScreenCrush, Jerry Bruckheimer told Variety, “Jack’s an amazing songwriter with a unique style. We’re thrilled to hear his fresh take on the William Tell Overture.”

‘The Lone Ranger’ is a big screen version of the tv show from the 1950s. Armie Hammer stars as the Lone Ranger, while Johnny Deep plays his Native American sidekick Tonto. The decision to enlist White for the film’s music came from Depp and director Gore Verbinski. “Gore hatched the idea and Johnny was thrilled with it,” Bruckheimer said. “We’re all very excited to have him on board.”

Though he has never scored a featured film, White has been involved with various movie projects in the past. He contributed several tracks to the Grammy-winning soundtrack for ‘Cold Mountain,’ which he also acted in. He also wrote ‘Another Way to Die’ for the James Bond pic ‘Quantum of Solace’ and performed it with Alicia Keys.
