Sony Developing "Sherlock Holmes"-Style "Oliver Twist" Sequel "Dodge and Twist"

Sony Developing "Sherlock Holmes"-Style "Oliver Twist" Sequel "Dodge and Twist"Submit Comment
Sony Pictures has hired Cole Haddon, the writer of NBC's upcoming "Dracula" show, to put together the script for "Dodge and Twist," an adventure based on the characters from Charles Dickens' classic "Oliver Twist" novel.

The new movie takes pickpocketing rivals Oliver Twist and Artful Dodger and re-imagines them twenty years later. The two are on opposite sides of the law and get embroiled in an affair to steal the Crown Jewels.

The story is based on an idea by Ahmet Zappa (The Odd Life of Timothy Green) and is meant to be similar to Robert Downey Jr's "Sherlock Holmes" movies. It's a high priority for the studio.

Rivals? They were more like friends surely. And why is an American writing this. Oliver is about as English as you're ever gonna get.

JIC, i was being sarcastic about the casting.

I would rather see an English production showing their love of the classics than some americans just tryin to add some class to their resume

I guess Americans are f*cking stupid and superficial and crass and low to watch a f*cking movie based on the source material. This is the rough fodder for the pigs not the high quality sh*t you feed the race horses. Garbage. f*cking over high literature for low-brow action comedy sh*t. Bet Twist has a f*cking gun and blows things up because Americans can never get enough guns death and destruction until someone kills a bunch of people in real life than they want to cry to their gods Jesus and Obama. f*cking nonsense. Betcha they do the f*cking same with Tom Sawyer except they'll put it in the future, make Tom a f*cking robot and have him drive a hovertank. What a load of f*cking sh*t. Make something intelligent and fresh you f*cking greedy *ssholes.
