Earlier this year it was reported that former 'White Stripes' frontman Jack White would write the score for Disney's upcoming Johnny Depp action-adventure film 'The Lone Ranger' and this was quite exciting news. But now, after writing some music for the film, comes word from Disney that White has left the production and will be replaced as the film's composer.
The Lone Ranger
'The Lone Ranger,' directed by Gore Verbinski, is currently in the midst of filming as photos of leads Johnny Depp (Tonto) and Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) in full costume and makeup leaking out left and right. However, recently the crew has experienced a tragedy on the Los Angeles set when one of the crew members died due to drowning on Friday.

Gore Verbinski's 'The Lone Ranger' is a film that almost wasn't. For a while - even with the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' director re-teaming with Johnny Depp for a franchise - it was deemed too expensive for Disney, and so they had to scale it back to get it to a $215 Million dollar budget. Now it appears that the film has fallen behind schedule and the budget has grown to $250 Million.
It's easy to see a release date move as just card shuffling, but a movie's success or failure is often linked to when it comes out. Would 'Battleship' and 'Dark Shadows' tanked as hard as they did if they weren't caught in the wake of 'The Avengers?' We now have new release dates for 'The Lone Ranger,' 'Thor 2' 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' and more.
Johnny Depp: actor, father and ... Comanche Indian? As of last week, yes, and it's all thanks to his role as Tonto in 'The Lone Ranger.'
Tonto is a part of the New Mexico-based Comanche Indians, and after the real-life group heard about Depp's dedication to the role, it extended an invitation for him to join their tribe.
