Reese Witherspoon Will Take Lead in Disney’s Live Action Tink

untitledReese Witherspoon and her partner in Pacific Standard are set to produce a Disney live action version of Peter Pan that will focus on the character Tinkerbell.  Witherspoon will be taking on the lead role herself.

Plot details are unknown other than that the film is set in the world of the classic and project is still in development, so there is no timeline for it to go into production.

In the original 1911 book by J.M. Barrie, she is described as a fairy who mended pots and kettles, an actual tinker of the fairy folk. Her speech was only heard as the sound of tinkling bells and could only be understood by other fairy folk. So how they will tackle this version will be interesting. Will they go down the ‘Hook’ route and make her like Julia Roberts? Will they dress her in green sparkles and have her sprinkling fairy dust all over the place? Or, like me, do you think Witherspoon is far too old to play this iconic Disney fairy? Let us know in the comments.
