Elizabeth Banks will play Tinkerbell in Disney's new live-action film Tink

Jul. 15, 2010by: George Merchan
Disney is planning on bringing back everyone's favorite diminutive flying hottie, Tinkerbell, in a live-action romantic comedy entitled TINK. And they're certainly casting the right girl for it - The lovely Elizabeth Banks (who helped develop the project) is attached to star.

The film will come courtesy of producers Adam Shankman (17 AGAIN), McG ("Human Target"), and Jennifer Gibgot (STEP UP 3-D), with Elizabeth Wright Shapiro and McG writing the script. No director is currently attached (though if it turns out to be McG, I will seriously laugh).

Not much info on the story itself is given by Variety except that the concept for the project "plays with the mischievous nature of the Tinkerbell character."

Banks will next be seen later this year in Paul Haggis's THE NEXT THREE DAYS and then next year in MY IDIOT BROTHER opposite Paul Rudd.

And... wait, WTF is this?

It's funny because her outfit above is almost Tinkerbell-ish.

I think she's the perfect choice for the character...

It's just a regurgitation of the same story yet again. No thanks.

Or if you were Don Draper, you'd stupidly do the exact opposite. :)

Doesn't sound promising.

Why don't they make a live action sequel to Peter Pan (Hook doesn't count).

There's an official sequel to the original book. Or go the prequel route with the Peter and the Starchasers. Which would make a fine little adventure film.

"Tink, I'm turning to stone...in my pants!!", says Peter Pan

Oh well, I guess Peter Pan will finally know what it feels like to be a big boy after all, especially if "Tink" looks like that.

If live action tinker bell doesn't have a bangin body then it's not worth going to see this disaster waiting to happen anyways, although I could see big sales for this if it was to release on valentines day or during the winter. And no over covering of the body!, animated tinker bell wore what was a appearantly a skimpy ass night gown that made her look like quite the little harlotte. I think the WTF link could possibly be a SNL movie, anyone else?
