Elizabeth Banks will fly as Tinkerbell

HollywoodNews.com: If you believe in fairies, then clap.
Because Elizabeth Banks is getting ready to don wings and a short-green skirt for her role as Tinkerbell in a live-action version of the Disney character.
Titled “Tink,” the live-action romantic comedy has Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot and McG developing the project as producers.
The film will follow the mischievous nature of the Tinkerbell character. The idea was hatched by Banks with Max Handelman, who not only co-runs the actress’ production label, Brownstone Prods, but is her husband as well.
Elizabeth Wright Shapiro, who has already worked with Banks on a number of projects, is on board to write the script.
Screenplays that Shapiro has penned on Banks’ behalf include “Keiko,” which Banks is attached to direct per Variety.
Shapiro has also penned “Allies With Benefits,” which Scott Free is producing.
Banks’ Brownstone label was recently behind the Disney Bruce Willis headliner “The Surrogates.” The label is quite busy with other projects, “Forever 21” at DreamWorks and “Pitch Perfect,” at Universal.
Banks’ upcoming acting gigs include Paul Haggis’ “The Next Three Days,” opposite Russell Crowe, and “The Details,” with Tobey Maguire.
At one point, Disney attempted to re-boot “Tinkerbell” as an animated film with Brittany Murphy as the voice. Project proceeded forward as a straight-to-video franchise sans Murphy’s vocals.
