"Indiana Jones With Anna Kendrick"
As this video's intro states, "After the excitement surrounding the all-female 'Ghostbusters' reboot, Hollywood is now remaking hundreds of classic films with female leads." Cue Anna Kendrick in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." We see her in the pivotal scene where she has to choose the right grail cup ... and maybe choose a few more to take home and decorate her house.

Disney's live-action trend continues with the announcement of its newest take on a classic character: Reese Witherspoon is set to play Tinker Bell in an origin story flick.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that the Oscar-winning actress has been tapped to headline "Tink," which will delve into the backstory of the "Peter Pan" character. Though there are no plot details yet, THR says that the movie "will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative." And like 2014 hit "Maleficent," "Tink" aims to tell "'the story you don't know,' and will offer a new perspective on the character," per THR.
Witherspoon certainly has the petite, pixie-ish looks to pull of the character, and she's been splitting her time pretty evenly these days between comedy and drama projects. Depending on which director she takes Tinker Bell, the flick could wind up being some combination of those two genres. »

Reese Witherspoon will play Tinkerbell in Disney's live-action remake of the film. The 39-year-old actress will star as the little fairy - made famous in 'Peter Pan' - in 'Tink', and will be replacing Elizabeth Banks, who has been attached to the film since 2010, as the producer as well, alongside Victoria Strouse - co-writer of Pixar's upcoming 'Finding Dory' - writing the script. According to the Hollywood Reporter, this latest take on Tinkerbell will ''play with the idea and timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative,'' and will take the angle of telling ''the story you don't know'', just like 'Maleficent' did with Angelina Jolie. However, 'Tink' is being developed with a more modest mid-range budget as opposed to 'Maleficent''s $180 million and 'Cinderella''s $95 million. Since Elizabeth announced she was playing Tinkerbell with a ''mischievous nature'' in 2010, Disney has released 'Maleficent', »

Disney have been having a field day of late reworking their animated back catalogue into live action blockbusters. Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella has been to the ball and left with wads of cash, and with Tim Burton announced as helmer for the transfer of Dumbo the House Of Mouse shows no signs of slowing down. Next to get the green light is a character who could well be mistaken for a green light herself – Tinker Bell!
The perpetually high-wattage Reese Witherspoon is to star in and produce Tink, a vehicle for Peter Pan’s tiny winged companion. Written by Victoria Strouse, it’s reportedly a period piece. J.M. Barrie’s source material evolved into a play and a novel in the early twentieth century.

In the past year or two, a succession of projects have been revealed by Disney, that aim to turn some of its animated classics into live action features. Tink, a movie outing for the character Tinkerbell, actually predates that trend, with this particular project having been in development since 2010.
For whilst Elizabeth Banks no longer seems to be involved, Reese Witherspoon very much is. She's signed on to star in and produce Tink, which is also getting a new screenplay from Victoria Strouse. Strouse has co-written the upcoming Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory.
The pitch here is that we're getting the Tinkerbell story we apparently didn't know, and it's »
“Do something funny for money” was the slogan of NBC’s inaugural “Red Nose Day” telecast, a live three-hour show that helped raise more than $21 million to aid children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad.
The telecast that originated Thursday from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom went off with only a few minor hitches that were probably not visible to the viewing audience at home.
Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski each hosted an hour of the program that blended pitches from stars such as Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde and Gwenyth Paltrow with taped comedy segments produced by Funny or Die and in-studio bits from “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost, Michael Che and Jay Pharaoh, as well as Billy Eichner and Josh Groban.
In between the entertainment, short films featuring celebrity appeals on behalf of specific causes struck a serious note. Jack Black traveled »

Reese Witherspoon is attached to tell a live-action version of Tinker Bell's story, The Hollywood Reporter writes. The project is in development, but, yes, in one of the more solid cartoon-to-live-action casting moves in recent memory, Witherspoon would play the titular fairy. Like the Peter Pan movie hitting theaters soon, this one also has a fun, one-word name: Tink. Finding Dory screenwriter Victoria Strouse is penning the screenplay, which will reportedly tell us the story we don't know (think Angelina Jolie's Maleficent). Drama.
