Reese Witherspoon to play Tinker Bell in live-action Disney film
In an unexpected (but somewhat logical, now that we really think about it) casting move, Reese Witherspoon has accepted the role of Tinker Bell in an upcoming live-action Disney film thought to simply be titled Tink.

The movie itself is still a big secret, but The Hollywood Reporter broke and confirmed news that the Oscar winner will indeed portray Peter Pan's fairy in the near future, and will also produce the project... which again explains her landing the lead role.

THR also reports that "Victoria Strouse, who wrote the script for Pixar’s upcoming Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory, is penning the script for the project, which does not have a director on board and is still in development."

Few details are known, but many believe the film will strive to tell a different side of the Tinker Bell story, one nobody knows, just as the super successful Maleficent (which starred Angelina Jolie) did. Interesting...
