Ashley Greene starring in Charles Dickens adaption


Ashley Greene, of the Twilight series, is set to star in an upcoming adaption of the classic Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist. As you might imagine, the new adaption will have a modern take – female protagonist and all.

The movie, titled Olivia Twisted (because progressive!) will feature Olivia and her group of street orphans who, after a botched kidnapping, find themselves in the midst of a gang turf-war. Michael De Luca is producing the project, saying that Olivia Twisted will be “combining classic Dickensian elements with a unique Gothic background.”
