Tink! Reese Witherspoon is set to star in Disney’s live-action Tinker Bell movie, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed on Thursday, May 21. The Oscar winner will also produce the take on Disney’s classic Peter Pan character with her production partner Bruna Papandrea

According to THR, Victoria Strouse (Finding Dory, New Best Friend) is penning the script for the project, which is still in the beginning phases of development. 

The project is reportedly going to center on the character and her origins in the vein of Disney and Angelina Jolie’s Maleficient.

Tinker Bell in the original 1953 classic, is, of course, the temperamental fairy who is jealous of anyone that gets near Peter Pan. Tinker Bell first appeared in J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play.

Witherspoon most recently starred in Oscar contender Wild and comedy Hot Pursuit.
