Marc Platt, the producer who also was behind Broadway’s Wicked, and Jeff Kwatinetz of The Firm are producing. It will be a historical tale with a hip-hop flair, much like Hamilton. Ice Cube will play Fagin, the leader of a London gang of pickpockets.

The popular story was already adapted by Disney as an animated movie, 1988’s Oliver and Company. But perhaps the biggest impact on popular culture has been through the never-ending iterations of the stage musical Oliver!
