“Pirates of the Caribbean” alumna Keira Knightley has signed on to provide the voice of ‘Tinkerbell’ in SyFy’s four-part mini-series “Neverland”.

Deadline broke the news of Knightley’s involvement plus ran the following synopsis “live-action project, a prequel to J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan, the Oscar-nominated actress joins Rhys Ifans, Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins, Charles Dance, Raoul Trujillo and Charlie Rowe. Written and directed by Nick Willing, Neverland centers on Peter (Rowe) who, along with his pals of young pickpockets, have been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook (Ifans) to snatch a magical orb that transports them to another world – Neverland. Filled with white jungles and imposing cities formed out of trees created by Dr. Fludd (Dance) and inhabited by a colony of tree spirits led by Tinker Bell (Knightley), this mysterious realm welcomes unknown friends and enemies snatched from time. These include power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Friel) and her band of 18th century pirates who search for the answer to eternal youth, a secret guarded by a Holy Man (Trujillo). As the fight to save this strange and beautiful world escalates, Peter and his crew consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up — right here in their new home called Neverland.”

I think it’s especially interesting, and a little bit cool, that Bob Hoskins is reprising his role as ‘Smee’ (from Spielberg’s “Hook”) for this one, too.

“Neverland”, of which Knightley will record her lines for in the Spring, airs on SyFy in December.
