He told Variety: ''Jack's an amazing songwriter with a unique style.

"We're all very excited to have him on board.''

Johnny Depp is said to be ''thrilled'' that the 36-year-old star - who had a small part in 2003 movie 'Cold Mountain' and wrote five songs for the soundtrack - is writing the score for the film, which is based on the 1950s TV series.

Jack has previously collaborated with Alicia Keys on 'Another Way To Die' for James Bond film 'Quantum of Solace'.

'The Lone Ranger' tells the story of the famed titular character and his sidekick Tonto - who is portrayed by Johnny Depp - who recounts the untold tales of the masked hero and his fight against greed and corruption.

The movie is due to be released on May 31, 2013.
