Elizabeth Banks as Live-Action Tinkerbell? Yes, Please

Elizabeth Banks to play TinkerbellPrepare to have that slightly awkward crush you’ve always had on the absurdly petite fairy Tinkerbell amplified in the near future. It has something to do with Elizabeth Banks and all of the costume possibilities. Tinkerbell always did wear skimpy outfits, did she not?

Alas, this is a story about a new live-action romantic comedy called Tink, in which Banks will play the beloved spreader of pixie dust. It’s being said that with this McG, Adam Shankman produced film “plays with the mischievous nature of the Tinkerbell character.” I’m not sure what that means, but having McG and Adam Shankman involved isn’t making me feel any easier about it. Banks works, but the guy who is responsible for Cheaper by the Dozen 2 does not. The good news is that the project is yet to attach a director, meaning that it still could go either way. For now, consider me hopeful as I ponder Elizabeth Banks in a Tinkerbell outfit. Don’t judge me. [Variety]
