Michael De Luca Prods. and Boss Media are teaming to produce “Olivia Twisted,” with “Twilight” star Ashley Greene toplining the ultramodern take on the classic Charles Dickens novel.

The project was announced at Tuesday at the Toronto Film Festival.

Michael De Luca, Alissa Phillips, Frank Mancuso Jr. and Eric Gores will produce the film. Greene stars for De Luca in the Weinstein Co. ensemble comedy “Butter,” which premiered in Toronto.
