Keira Knightley is to play the fairy Tinker Bell in a new Peter Pan prequel movie.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean actress will voice the character in Neverland, which is to be screened in the summer.

She joins a cast which already includes Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins and Charles Dance for the film, to be screened in two parts on Sky Movies Premiere HD later this year.

She leads a colony of tree-dwelling spirits in the film, which imagines a world before JM Barrie's classic tale begins.

Keira will record her role shortly.

Rhys Ifans plays Hook, the mentor of a gang of young pickpockets which includes Peter (Charlie Rowe), who steal a magical treasure which transports them to Neverland.
