LOS ANGELES ( - Reese Witherspoon is attached to star in Disney's Tink, a live-action film based on the "Peter Pan" character Tinker Bell.

Witherspoon will also produce the pic with her producing partner Bruna Papandrea through their Pacific Standard banner.

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 live-action versions of Dumbo and Winnie the Pooh.
