Anachronisms ahoy!

Slashfilm is warning us to brace ourselves for Dodge and Twist, a movie retelling of Charles Dickens’s novel Oliver Twist that will combine "the context of a period film with modern action thrills". They're comparing it to Guy Ritchie's recent Sherlock Holmes films, which would concern me... if I cared about Oliver Twist, which I don't. As it is, I'm thinking the movie (which will be set 20 years later and feature pick-pocketing rivals Oliver Twist and the Artful Dodger teaming up in an attempt to steal the Crown Jewels) sounds kind of fun.
