Parkour Oliver Twist

It would be easy to mock the idea of a parkour Oliver Twist. It could certainly be seen by the cynical as the perversion of a classic, one that will most certainly shove modern hipness into a story meant to be a serious microscope into poverty and the ethical impossibilities it presents. But what’s the fun in that? Instead, let’s celebrate the prospect of parkour flipping pickpockets all hopped up on Red Bull. According to Variety, the energy drink company is pairing with Pure Grass Films and the Salt Co. to create Twist – a currently-set take on the classic novel from Charles Dickens. Is there any chance it won’t be in 3D? Of course not. This shit is going to be sailing into your eye balls in as many dimensions as possible.



Pierre Morel has been tapped to make a new Dune for Paramount. Pressing questions and Max von Sydow references inside.



Robert Fure gets all hopped on too much free-running in films and vaults over a street and back flips into a puddle of rage.
