Modern Oliver Twist set to hit our screens.

And in ‘NBC needs to hire some better writers news’ there is a plan to develop a modernised version of Oliver Twist aptly named Twist with the tagline being:

“A sexy contemporary take on Oliver Twist with a struggling 20-something female (Twist) who finally finds a true sense of family in a strange group of talented outcasts who use their unique skills to take down wealthy criminals.”

While there success with the modernisation of Sherlock Holmes and Pride and Prejudice in recent years this feels like something which might not make it past the fourth episode depending on the actors attached to it. Although the source material has a fair bit drama too it the culmination of the story is in Oliver finding his actual family away from his band of thieves.

Oh who am I kidding I’m going to watch it no matter how crap it is…
