'Tink': Elizabeth Banks is Tinkerbell, of course

Elizabeth Banks will play Tinkerbell in Tink, a live-action romantic comedy from Disney to be produced by Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot, and McG. All we know is that the movie “plays with the mischievous nature of the Tinkerbell character,” so perhaps she’ll be playing with fart apps on her iPhone the whole time.

We’ve seen Tinkerbell in four films now — silent Peter Pan, Disney’s classic animated Peter Pan, Julia Roberts in Hook, and Ludivine Sagnier in 2003’s Peter Pan (which frankly I forgot even happened, but look at all these crazy YouTube tribute videos!). Is this fairy ready to carry her own movie? Will you be Enchanted by the liveliness of all the action? [Variety]
