The actress with the best last name in Hollywood has just landed one of the best roles in Hollywood. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon will star in Disney’s Tink, a live-action film following around the lovable Peter Pan character, Tinker Bell.
She will also produce the movie under her Pacific Standard production company. As of right now, Reese is the only star attached to the project, and there doesn’t appear to be a director on board just yet.
But it does have a writer. Finding Dory writer Victoria Strouse has been hired to write the script. Not much else is known about the project; however, the report did point out that the film will “play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative.”
Insiders also claim Tink will offer a new perspective on the character, which doesn’t really help us in our search for more details. Of course it’s going to be a new perspective on the character.
One thing is clear, Disney is going live-action crazy. After scoring big with Cinderella and Maleficent, Disney announced live-action adaptations of Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh, and now this new Tinker Bell film.
Which movie will be next? Any guesses?[mashshare]
