I see it.
Reese Witherspoon is set to produce a live-action take on the classic Peter Pan character Tinker Bell, in her new film Tink, and aside from tiny dwarfkin Hayden Panettiere, I couldn’t think of a better gal for the job.
And the best part? So many women are attached to make the film a reality.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon will produce with Bruna Papandrea, her partner at the duo’s production banner, Pacific Standard. Victoria Strouse (who wrote the script for Pixar’s upcoming Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory) will write the script. No director yet, but I hope they’ve got ladyparts!
Sources say it’s being developed in the same way 2014’s Maleficent was, so that’s something to worry about. Like Maleficent, this Tinker Bell tale is conceived as “the story you don’t know,” and will offer a new perspective on the character with you know, a more midrange budget for the film and no horn prosthetics (we think).
What do you think? Does this film sound totally interesting or a lame rehash? GO!
