We might not get to actually watch Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer's anticipated Disney flick The Lone Ranger until next May, but at least now when we try to imagine it, we have some idea as to what the background music might be like.

The Walt Disney Studios announced today at CinemaCon that Jack White, the White Stripes and Raconteurs musician, will write, produce and perform the score for the film.

The Lone Ranger will be the first feature film-scoring project for White, but he had a small role in Cold Mountain, where he sang several tradition songs, including "Wayfaring Stranger." He also cowrote and performed the song "Another Way to Die" with Alicia Keys for the James Bond film Quantum of Solace.

So what can we expect?

"We're going to have a little rock ‘n' roll score, and I can't wait to hear his rendition of the 'William Tell Overture,'" Jerry Bruckheimer said at CinemaCon.

Bruckheimer also revealed some more tidbits about the movie. "We have the classic elements, the big white hat for The Lone Ranger, though he's not wearing his blue suit. But he has his black mask, and he has silver bullets, and of course he has his horse Silver. Everything else is slightly different."

Are you excited to see what White does with the music? Let us know in the comments!
