Tough break, Kemo Sabe — Jack White’s not scoring The Lone Ranger after all.
Though it was initially reported that the blues-rocker would compose the score for the upcoming film starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, Disney has announced that Pirates of the Caribbean veteran Hans Zimmer is now on board.
“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,” Disney said in a statement. “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.”
