Following the release of his debut solo album and first ever UK show, plans for Jack White's next project have been revealed.

White is set to score the movie adaptation of classic TV series, "The Lone Ranger" - which will star Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer from "The Social Network".

The new adaptation is a Disney production, with Jerry Bruckheimer producing the movie.

"Jack's an amazing songwriter with a unique style. We're thrilled to hear his fresh take on the William Tell Overture," says Bruckheimer.

"Gore (Verbinski, director) hatched the idea and Johnny was thrilled with it. We're all very excited to have him on board."

"The Lone Ranger" is due for release in 2013.

    Well, at least we're guaranteed another Jack White solo project in the near future. The Raconteurs would be a good fit for a western though.

    So... ...what you're saying is that even though the movie might not be tasteful, the score will?

    I hope this leads to Johnny Depp playing Jack White in the Jack White movie.

    Ehh it only let me like it once. This will be epic I'm sure we'll hear some Dead Weathers but it would be epic to see the cast of "It might get loud" work with Jack
