Adele to make her Hollywood debut?

The singer is reportedly in talks to make her debut in a film adaptation of the Oliver! musical

Published: 05th September 2017

Singer Adele is reportedly in talks for her first Hollywood movie role in a new film adaptation of the iconic musical Oliver!

The 29-year-old is said to be "seriously considering" the offer from film executives who are keen on getting the Hello hitmaker onboard to play Nancy in a remake of the hit 1968 musical.

"It would be a major part for her. She's talked about Angelo (her son) being her number one priority and she thinks this is a role he will appreciate also. It would be a new challenge for her, but one she'd definitely be up for," said a source. 

Oliver! is based on the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist, which tells the tale of the orphan Oliver who meets a pickpocket on the London streets. He then joins a household of boys who are trained to steal for their master. 

The original film starred Mark Lester as the protagonist, with Ron Moody playing the crooked Fagin and Shani Wallis portraying Nancy.
