In what may be one of Disney's best-matched castings to date, Reese Witherspoon is to play Tinker Bell in a new film.
Tink, which will focus on the story of Peter Pan's fairy companion, is the latest classic from the animation studio to be given the live-action treatment.
The movie is thought to be following in the footsteps of Disney's Sleeping Beauty spin-off Maleficent in that it will portray the untold story of the lead character.

Disney’s been on a heavy trend of revisiting its animated classics in the form of live-action remakes, but the most recent addition is actually the resurrection of a project that’s been in development for years. In 2010, Elizabeth Banks became attached to star in Tink, a live-action movie that would follow Peter Pan character Tinkerbell and aimed to “play with the mischievous nature” of the fairy. The project obviously has yet to come to fruition, but in 2012 Banks still sounded optimistic, saying they had a great script and were continuing development. Since that time, Disney has put into development/production/release the live-action films Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Mulan, Winnie the Pooh, Pinnocchio, and a twist on Jack and the Beanstalk. Now, it appears, there’s new life in Tink, although Banks doesn’t appear to be involved anymore. THR reports that Reese Witherspoon »

Victoria Strouse is penning the script.
Plot details are unknown other than that the film is set in the world of the classic novel with Tinker Bell in full focus.
The project is still in development and there is no timeline for it to go into production.
It’s yet another project based on a classic Disney animated pic that is being given the live-action treatment. Disney has already seen live-action versions of “Alice in Wonderland,” Sleeping Beauty story “Maleficent” and “Cinderella” become box-office hits and sees this as a formula that works as well as a comicbook pic.
The studios has “Beauty and the Beast” in production and is also developing »

One Night at Flumpty’s
Developed and published by Jonochrome
Available on PC, Mac
Scared of eggs? You will be. Seriously. Five Night’s at Freddy’s has seen many reincarnations, but none have captured the creep factor in the way that One Night at Flumpty’s does. Flumpty’s is a parody of Freddy’s that condenses five wild nights into one terrifying shift.
Flumpty is a giant smiling egg that doesn’t play by the rules, and isn’t afraid to tell you so himself. He is friends with Birthday Blam Boy, a stylish little guy with a rectangular head. Rounding out Flumpty’s gang is the Beaver, who enjoys catching up on the latest news while on the john, Redman, who ominously causes cameras to malfunction, Grunkfuss the Clown, who really puts you to the test at the end of the night, and Golden Flumpty, who you will hopefully never see. »

With production on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast beginning soon, the film is nearly finished rounding out its cast. Earlier today, we learned that former Obi-Wan Kenobi Ewan McGregor will star as the French candelabra Lumiere. Now Stanley Tucci has joined the film’s cast, but there’s one thing that makes his character unique from everyone else, he didn’t appear in the 1991 animated movie or the Broadway musical adaptation. Variety reports that Tucci will play Cadenza the grand piano, who is described as a “neurotic maestro.” Following Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, and Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast is next on Disney’s slate of live-action adaptations of their classic animated films, which includes The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Winnie The Pooh, and Mulan.

To tie in with BBC series Secret Britain, we asked you to suggest underappreciated corners of the country. Find them all using our custom-built map – just try to keep them to yourself
Last week was the start of a new series of Secret Britain, the BBC1 show where the corn-fed duo of Adam Henson and Ellie Harrison ferret out the forgotten corners of our countryside. Cue plenty of sunlight sparkling through waterfalls and the word “amazing”.
To mark the first episode – and to perhaps trump their selections – we invited you to share your own secret parts of Britain. Hundreds of comments later, at least half of you harrumphed that you’d be keeping your favourite place to yourself, thank you very much, lest it be overrun by quinoa-picnicking Guardianistas. But just as many shared a wealth of fascinatingly obscure spots, from remote Scottish islands to the industrial north-east, forgotten Home Counties villages and southwestern woodlands. »

Casting is in full swing for Disney’s upcoming Beauty and the Beast adaptation, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle – no relation) today becoming the latest addition to the all-star cast that’s led by Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans. The actress, who scored Oscar buzz for her role in last year’s Beyond the Lights, will take on the supporting part of Plumette the feather duster.
Mbatha-Raw joins a cast that already boasts Watson as Belle, Stevens as the Beast, Evans as Gaston, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth the clock, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts the teapot, Josh Gad as LeFou, Kevin Kline as Maurice and Audra MacDonald as Garderobe. Interestingly, her character has undergone a name change in this take – previous adaptations have featured flirty feather dusters with the names Babette and Fifi.

However you feel about Disney plumbing its past fairy tales for big screen redos, there’s no denying that the studio’s casting choices for Bill Condon’s upcoming Beauty and the Beast have been spot-on. With Emma Watson in the role of Belle, and Dan Stevens and Luke Evans vying for her affections as the Beast and Gaston (respectively), the film looks increasingly like a must-see for acting aficionados. Now, the production has attracted another A-lister, with news that X-Men‘s Ian McKellen is taking on the role of Cogsworth.
In the original Disney flick, Cogsworth was the loyal butler to the Prince who was magically transformed into a clock by the same spell that turned his master into a savage beast.

Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) is directing from a script written by Evan Spiliotopoulos and rewritten by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower).
