Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon will star in and produce a live-action film based on the character of Tinker Bell from J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Witherspoon will also produce the film, which is titled "Tink," with her partner Bruna Papandrea.

The screenplay will be penned by Victoria Strouse. A director has not been named. No release date has been announced.

"Tink," according to the industry paper, "will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative. It is also being developed in the vein of 'Maleficent,'... [as] 'the story you don’t know,' and will offer a new perspective on the character."

Tinker Bell, described by Barrie as a "common fairy," also makes an appearance in the new Broadway musical Finding Neverland.
