Jack White will write, produce and perform the soundtrack to Disney's new adaptation of The Lone Ranger, the film's producer has said.

The project will be White's first film soundtrack, following the release of his solo album 'Blunderbuss' on Monday (April 23).

"Jack's an amazing songwriter with a unique style," producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Variety. "We're all very excited to have him on board."

Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, The Lone Ranger tells the story of a masked crimefighter (played by Hammer) and his sidekick Tonto (played by Depp). It is based on the popular television series from the 1950s.

Johnny Depp is said to be "thrilled" that White will write the soundtrack.

The former White Stripes frontman had a small role in the 2003 film Cold Mountain, penning several songs for the soundtrack and singing traditional American folk songs such as 'Wayfaring Stranger'. He also co-wrote and performed the song 'Another Way To Die' with Alicia Keys for the James Bond film Quantum Of Solace.

Jack White played his first solo UK show this week (April 23), headlining London's HMV Forum the day 'Blunderbuss' was released.

White is set to return in June for more UK gigs, including a set at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend event in London on June 23.
