Hans Zimmer Replaces Jack White on THE LONE RANGER

     December 14, 2012


There’s been a bit of a behind-the-scenes change on director Gore Verbinski’s upcoming adventure pic The Lone Ranger.  This past April, welcome news came in the form of Jack White signing on to pen the score to Verbinski’s Western, but it appears that scheduling issues have gotten in the way and White has exited the project.  In his stead will be frequent Verbinski collaborator Hans Zimmer, who of course composed the unforgettable score for the director’s Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Disney explained in a statement (via The Playlist) that White “has contributed several pieces of music to the production,” but became logistically unavailable when the film’s release date was pushed from May to July.  It’s a bummer that we won’t get to hear an original Western score from White, but Zimmer isn’t too shabby as a replacement.  Hopefully White’s work will see the light of day at some point, either in the finished film as a couple of standalone tracks or as part of an EP  The Lone Ranger is set to open on July 3, 2013.

    I thought Zimmer has been the composer all along?

    I mean, his name was on the first trailer that came out a few months back.

    I assume that The Lone Ranger’s movie soundtrack cd will probably be released on Tuesday July 2nd 2013, which is the day before The Lone Ranger is released to theaters?

    Isnt Zimmer doing Man of Steel?

      Maybe Hans Zimmer finished the music of Man of Steel?

    Disappointing that it won’t be White, but let’s face it, you could do far worse than Zimmer.

    I’ve got nothing against Zimmer, but it seems like him, John Williams, and Howard Shore do the music for EVERY big film in Hollywood. Was excited to hear what Jack White could do, something fresh and original was what I was hoping for.

    Behold, the first big flop of 2013.

    • Sean B

      It won’t flop. Its got 1 of the same cast from the 4 Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and the same music composer from the 4 Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and the same director from the first 3 Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It’s even got the same script writters from the 4 Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It will do do just fine in the box office.
