The 28-year-old “Ritual” singer, the 46-year-old Game of Thrones actress, and the 86-year-old The Dark Knight Rises actor have all signed on for the UK film, a contemporary update of the Charles Dickens classic “Oliver Twist,” Deadline reports.

Little Britain‘s David Walliams, Legends of Tomorrow‘s Franz Drameh, and Daybreak‘s Sophie Simnett will also star, along with with newcomer Raff Law (son of Jude Law) in the title role.

Here’s the synopsis: “Oliver is reinvented as a streetwise artist living on the streets of day London. A chance encounter with a gang of grifters led by the charismatic Dodge (Rita Ora) sees Twist (Law) caught up in a high stakes heist to steal a priceless painting for master thief, Fagin (Caine), and his psychopathic business partner, Sikes (Headey).”

Franz will play Batesey, Sophie will play Red, and David will play Losberne. Martin Owen will direct.

Production begins this autumn.

Twist will be available on Comcast-owned Euro broadcaster Sky’s UK movie platform Sky Cinema. That same day, there will be a limited theatrical release in the market via Altitude.

Michael Caine said, “Fagin is such an infamous character, it’s going to be great fun playing him. I’m really looking forward to working with Lena, Raff and the rest of the cast in London when we start shooting.”

Lena Headey added, “I couldn’t be more excited to take on the iconic character of Sikes from ‘Oliver Twist.’ Flipping roles without apology or character softening is a brilliant way to breathe new life into established materials and bring it to new audiences.”

Raff chimed in, “I’m excited to play such a well-loved literary character, and I’m looking forward to working with Martin Owen to bring to life his new take on the character in modern-day London.”
