Eddie Redmayne and singer Adele to star in new ‘Oliver!’ remake?

Adele is apparently being lined up to appear in a new remake of the hit musical Oliver!.

The British singer has reportedly been approached about taking the role of Nancy, alongside The Theory of Everything star Eddie Redmayne as Fagin.

The movie will be produced by the makers of 2012’s Les Miserables movie, which starred Redmayne alongside Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: “Eddie has always wanted to play the part of Fagin. It’s a role that has been close to him since he was a child so this is a great opportunity and he’s keen.

“He was in the stage production of Oliver! directed by Sam Mended when he was ten but didn’t get to be part of the gang and he has never given up on that dream. Eddie thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of singing live during filming for Les Mis and is excited at the prospect of doing it all over again in this.”
