Hans Zimmer Taking Over Scoring Duties For THE LONE RANGER
In the credits of the latest trailer for Disney's The Lone Ranger, it was mentioned that the Gore Verbinski-directed western has a new composer in the form of Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight Rises, Pirates Of The Caribbean).
Back in April, it was reported that Grammy Award-winning musician Jack White, lead vocalist/guitarist for White Stripes, had been hired to compose the score for Walt Disney Pictures' upcoming action-western film The Lone Ranger. However, in credits at the end of the recently released theatrical trailer (which you can watch below), a new composer for the Gore Verbinski-directed movie has been named. And that composer is none other than the highly prolific Hans Zimmer, whose score for The Dark Knight Rises recently garnered a Grammy nomination. There's currently no word on whether or not any of the music composed by White will be included in the film. Zimmer previously worked with Verbinski on The Ring, Rango and the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, so the fact that they're teaming up for yet another big blockbuster shouldn't be surprising. The Lone Ranger stars Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson and William Fichtner. The film is set to hit theaters July 3rd, 2013. Many thanks to Film Music Reporter for the heads up.
