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.

Script by tyro writer Michael Roberts follows 19-year-old Olivia and a group of highly trained street urchins. Upon accepting a kidnapping job, they find themselves in the middle of a turf war between warring criminal factions.

Project will combine Dickensian elements with a Gothic backdrop.

Boss Media bought the project in a preemptive bid last weekend. The company, a partnership

between Mancuso and Gores, financed and produced the romantic comedy “Ten Year,” which is also premiering at the fest.

De Luca’s a producer on Sony’s “Moneyball,” which premiered Friday at TIFF, and on “The Social Network.”
