Jack White and Johnny Depp should probably just make a movie together one of these years (since they look like brothers and all; just me?), but, for now, this is the next best thing: White has been hired to write and perform the score for Depp's "The Lone Ranger."
The announcement was made during the Warner Bros. presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
"Jack's an amazing songwriter with a unique style," Bruckheimer said. "We're thrilled to hear his fresh take on the William Tell Overture."
(As you probably know, the theme song for "The Lone Ranger" was a section of the "William Tell Overture" by Gioachino Rossini.)
White has never written a movie score before but he does have some movie credits on his resume. He wrote the theme song to the James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" and appeared as an actor in "Cold Mountain" and "Walk Hard."
As for "The Lone Ranger," the film -- which had its fair share of pre-production troubles -- arrives in theaters on May 31, 2013. Depp stars as Tonto, while Armie Hammer is his ke-mo sah-bee, The Lone Ranger.

White's newest album, Blunderbuss, is out now.
