Ahmet Zappa Plans Dodge & Twist

February 11, 2013


Sony Pictures has plans to turn Ahmet Zappa's conceptual reinterpration of Charles Dicken's "Oliver Twist" into a feature film called Dodge & Twist, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Set 20 years after the events of the classic novel, Dodge & Twist finds Oliver Twist and the Artful Dodger at odds with one another as Oliver, now a police officer, tries to prevent the Dodger from a plan to steal the Crown Jewels.

Cole Haddon, the creator of NBC's upcoming "Dracula" series, will provide the screenplay with Zappa and Matt Tolmach producing.

Dodge & Twist marks the second film project currently being developed from the source material. CBS Films recently acquired the rights to Olivia Twisted, a modern day retelling of the story with a female protagonist.
