Jack White Pulls from Composing ‘The Lone Ranger’

Jack White has reportedly dropped out of scoring Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger, citing scheduling conflicts.

White is expected to still contribute material to the film, which stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, under his replacement Hans Zimmer, according to a statement by Disney:

“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.”

White’s previous cinematic contributions include “Another Way To Die” for Quantum of Solace and “Wayfaring Stranger” to Cold Mountain.

A new trailer for the full-length production, which debuts July 3, premiered last week. The film was originally slated for May 2013.
