Back in July of 2010 it was announced that Disney was putting together a live action Tinkerbell movie called Tink, and that Elizabeth Banks would star. That sounded like a fun idea, but July 2010 was a long time ago…whatever happened to it? Apparently it’s still a possibility, and while talking to Movie Hole, Banks spilled a few more details about the concept: “It’s a live action Tinkerbell movie sort of in the vein of Elf in which I would play Tinkerbell. Tinkerbell gets thrown out of Never Never Land, and it’s about where she goes and who she meets and the adventures she has…Tinkerbell is one of the greatest characters because she’s mischievous and snarky and fun and sexy and jealous and vengeful.” Invoking the name of Elf  is a pretty bold move. Could Disney really make something that funny? The possibility is there, as Banks is a talented comedic actress, and the script is being written by Fright Night screenwriter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer veteran Marti Noxon, who is no slouch either.

Elizabeth Banks to play Tinkerbell

Prepare 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]
