Jack White is a pretty animated guy, right? He's got an aesthetic all his own, with all the matching colors, top hats and dandy-esque outfits, so in a weird way this just totally makes sense: White has signed on to write, produce and perform the original score for Disney's upcoming film The Lone Ranger, Variety reports [via Pitchfork].

The film is already pegged to hit theaters on May 31, 2013 (talk about planning ahead, even for a movie). and Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are set to star in the film, which is based on the popular television series from the 1950s. Hammer will play the masked crime fighter and Depp his Native American sidekick, Tonto. Here's what they'll look like!
