Former frontman of The White Stripes Jack White has issued a denial after it was reported he was working on the score for the new film adaptation of The Kinks' 'Schoolboys In Disgrace' album.

White issued the denial after The Kinks frontman Ray Davies gave an interview to BBC in which he talked openly about White's involvement in film.

He said White's supposed score had a "great anarchic sound" and that The Dead Weather man was "a great technical player and would bring some great anarchy to it, which is in keeping with the script."

However, a spokesman for White has now denied he is involved in the film, issuing a statement that reads: "Rumours of Jack White's participation in the film version of The Kinks' Schoolboys in Disgrace are untrue. Jack White has great respect for The Kinks and the film's director, Bobcat Goldthwait, but has no plans to record any music for the film as erroneously reported."

White has kept a low profile since The White Stripes announced their split earlier this year, making only a surprise appearance at South By South West by way of public outings.
