A source told MailOnline: ‘Twist is a modern interpretation of Charles Dickens’ Oliver in which the title character has been reinvented as a streetwise artist living on the streets of modern-day London.

‘Rafferty impressed with his screen presence and his edginess brings a whole new dimension to the role of Oliver.

‘It’s an all-star cast with David in the mix after arriving at today’s first rehearsal – not to mention Rita and Sir Michael Caine.’

In the new film, Oliver and Dodger get caught up in a heist to steal a priceless painting for master thief, Fagin.

On playing the villain, Sir 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.’

Game Of Thrones star Lena Headey plays Sikes, who’s been described as ‘Fagin’s psychopathic business partner,’ in the original film directed by Martin Owen.

Rafferty added: ‘I’m excited to play such a well-loved literary character. I’m looking forward to working with Martin Owen to bring to life his new take on the character in modern-day London.’
