Reese Witherspoon to star in Disney's live-action Tinker Bell film

Please, I've had enough; can these live-action takes on Disney's classic characters just end already? There are already so many of them in various stages of development, including BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE JUNGLE BOOK, DUMBO, MULAN, PINOCCHIO, WINNIE THE POOH, and JACK AND THE BEANSTALK. The newest character to receive the live-action remake treatment will be none other than that feisty little fairy, Tinker Bell.

THR reports that Reese Witherspoon is attached to star in and produce TINK, a live-action take on the classic PETER PAN character. TINK is said to "play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative" while offering a new perspective on the character as it gives us "the story you don't know." Victoria Strouse, the writer behind the FINDING DORY, is tackling the script for TINK.

If TINK sounds familiar to you it's because the film was actually in development several years ago with Elizabeth Banks attached to star. It'd been several years since we last heard about the project but this recent trend of live-action remakes seem to have given TINK a chance at resurrection. As opposed to the larger budgeted MALEFICENT and CINDERELLA, TINK is being developed with a more modest mid-range budget in mind.

Witherspoon's most recent film, HOT PURSUIT, was released on May 8, 2015.

Why do they need to stop making the live-action versions of their films? So far they've all been successful in the box office. The movies themselves may be of varying quality (I thought Cinderella was pretty good). But it's clear there is definitely an audience for them. Would you ask Disney to stop producing Marvel movies because there are so many of them and many more in development?

I don't mind a live action Tinkerbell

I love the character. I also really like Reese Witherspoon but isn't she a bit old for Tinkerbell? She's 39. I'd say someone under 25 would be better. In fact I think it's ridiculous casting.

"play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative" - so it's a remake / reimagine then.
