No, no, no, no….

oliverPB09I wonder what Charles Dickens would’ve though of the variety of mediums used to interpret his books.

I think he would’ve loved film and television, stage he was very keen on himself but musicals…i’m not sure!

‘Oliver!’ which is the award winning version of ‘Oliver Twist’ is to be remade. I don’t really like musicals although there are a few exception and ‘Oliver!’ just happens to be one of them.

It sticks fairly faithfully to the story without, of course hanging Fagin at the end. Nevertheless I enjoy it as do many other.

For whatever reason Sony Pictures have decided to make a new version (as if it needs doing) of this five Oscar winning title.

According to Variety this version reported to be a darker take on the original 1968 classic and will be shot on location in and around London earlier next year.

The film should be released sometime at the end of 2016…this sounds like a bad idea…what do you think?
