A couple months back, we reported that Jack White was set to score The Lone Ranger (aka Land Pirates of the Caribbean). Plans have now changed, with Hans Zimmer coming on to do the score instead. White will still contribute some music to the film. Here's some of Disney's official announcement:
While Zimmer's certainly a solid pick, I wish the filmmakers had gone with someone else for the score given how ubiquitous Zimmer has become. The pick screams "safety school." (They should have been ballsy and gone with Buddy Guy. Seriously.) No word if Zimmer will base his score on any of White's pieces.
