Sony Pictures has begun development on Twist & Dodge.

The Oliver Twist reimagining will be set 20 years after Charles Dickens's classic second novel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The story will set the eponymous character - who has grown up to be a policeman - against his childhood friend the Artful Dodger.

Twist attempts to foil the loveable rogue's plot to steal the crown jewels.

Cole Haddon (NBC's Dracula) will provide the screenplay, with Ahmet Zappa and Matt Tolmach producing.

The rights to modern Oliver Twist retelling Oliver Twisted - which features a female protagonist - were recently acquired by CBS Films.
