Elizabeth Banks to play Disney's real life Tinkerbell

Elizabeth Banks is set to star in McG's live-action Tinkerbell movie, Tink. Quick, everyone shout, "There's No Such Things As Fairies!", and maybe this pixie movie will die off.

No doubt this had something to do with those direct-to-DVD CG animated movies Disney put out, featuring "uncanny valley" versions of Tink and her fairy CG dead-face friends. The only clues about the story of this film, which McG is producing, are that it's based around Tink's mischievous nature.

No offense to Banks, we think she's lovely. But we always had our hearts set on a Tina Fey tinkerbell after Disney released their celebrity liv- action fairy tale ads. Ah well.
