Elizabeth Banks talks about her live-action Tinkerbell film

Elizabeth Banks talks about her live-action Tinkerbell film

Elizabeth Banks is firing all cylinders right now, and you likely won’t find a more versatile actress on the IMDB. The vivacious blonde actress can ostensibly do it all; from comedy (“Zack and Miri Make a Porno”, “The 40 Year-Old Virgin”), drama (“W”, “Seabiscuit”), thriller (“The Hunger Games”, “The Uninvited”), horror (“Slither”) to adventure (The “Spider-Man” trilogy), she’s got the genres cornered and perfected. At the junket for her new film “Man on a Ledge”, I asked Banks about her aspiration to produce her own films. She spoke a little about “Tink”, announced a little while ago, in which she’ll play Peter Pan’s fairy-dust spreading buddy.

The movie, says Banks, is a little like Will Ferrell’s “Elf”.

It’s a live action Tinkerbell movie sort of in the vein of Elf in which I would play Tinkerbell. Tinkerbell gets thrown out of Never Never Land, and it’s about where she goes and who she meets and the adventures she has….Tinkerbell is one of the greatest characters because she’s mischievous and snarky and fun and sexy and jealous and vengeful

Banks says don’t get too excited just yet….

We’re in script stage and everybody is really excited and blah, blah, doesn’t mean anything. You might as well not even write it down because who knows, it might not even happen.

“Fright Night” scribe Marti Noxon is on scripting duties, with Banks, Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”) and McG (“Charlie’s Angels”) among the film’s producers.

Meanwhile, Banks has another film she’s listed as a producer on, “Pitch Perfect”.

It is a comedy set in the world of competitive cappella singing. It stars a bevy of hilarious, young talent – Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine, Anna Kendrik, Anna Camp, Britney Snow. It’s really funny.
