Los Angeles: Reese Witherspoon has been signed by Disney to star in a live action Tinker Bell film.
The film, entitled "Tink", will be a whole new take on the mischievous Peter Pan heroine, said the Hollywood Reporter.
In a similar vein to "Maleficent", the 2014 movie starring Angelina Jolie which offered a fresh take on the Sleeping Beauty baddie, "Tink" will show a different side to Tinker Bell.
Witherspoon, 39, will also have a producer credit. She will be producing alongside Bruna Papandrea, who works with Witherspoon in their shared production venture "Pacific Standard". Witherspoon and Papandrea have previously produced together "Wild" and "Gone Girl".
Victoria Strouse, who wrote the script for the "Finding Nemo" follow-up "Finding Dory", is writing the script for "Tink".
However, a director for Tink has yet to be confirmed and the project is still in development.
