Jack White has won Grammys, plays multiple instruments, and has even secured a spot on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, but he's never worked on a film score... At least, not until now. Variety reports that Disney has hired the multi-talented singer/producer/actor to write, produce, and perform the score for their upcoming western produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.
"Gore [Verbinski] hatched the idea and Johnny was thrilled with it," Bruckheimer told Variety. "We're all very excited to have [Jack White] on board." I'm a big fan of when established artists stretch their creativite muscles and enter the realm of movies, and some recent success stories include The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, and Trent Reznor.
Are you a fan of Jack White's music, and do you think he can pull off the score to a western adventure like this?
