Ashley Greene is ready to start moving further away from her role as Alice Cullen in those annoying “Twilight” films and branch her acting career. According to Variety, Greene is set to star in an “ultra modern” version of the Charles Dicken’s novel “Oliver Twist” in a retelling entitled “Olivia Twisted”.
Along with the classic elements, the film will also have a gothic backdrop to it.
With a script set to be penned by Michael Roberts, the film follows 19 year-old Olivia and a group of highly-trained, orphaned street urchins. Upon accepting a kidnapping job they find themselves in the middle of a turf war between warring criminal factions.
Michael De Luca, Alissa Phillips, Frank Mancuso Jr. and Eric Gores will produce the film.
Up next for Greene is playing Alice Cullen once again in the November release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” and next year’s release of “Butter” with Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde, and Hugh Jackman.
