Michael Caine, Lena Headey and Rita Ora are set to star in “Twist,” a modern-day, gender-bending adaptation of the Dickens classic “Oliver Twist” for British cabler Sky.
Jude Law’s son Raff Law will play Oliver, a streetwise artist living on the streets of modern-day London. A chance encounter with a gang of grifters led by the charismatic Dodge (Ora), propels Twist into a high-stakes heist to steal a priceless painting for master thief Fagin (Caine) and his psychopathic business partner Sikes (Headey).
Franz Drameh, Sophie Simnett and David Walliams also star. Martin Owen helms from a script by John Wrathall, Sally Collett and Owen. Matt Williams, Ben Grass, Jason Maza and Noel Clarke produce.
Filming begins this Fall ahead of a 2020 release day and date in theaters and on the Sky Cinema pay-TV service.
