Ice Cube to star as Fagin in Disney's Oliver Twist

The Hollywood Reporter recently reported that Ice Cube will star as Fagin in Disney's upcoming reboot of Oliver Twist. This is going to be Thomas Kail's directorial debut on the silver screen. Previously, he won 2016 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical for Hamilton.

The rapper Ice Cube is also expected to work as one of the producers along with Jeff Kwatinetz. The news caught everyone's attention because of the rapper's public persona. It is hard to imagine an African-american gangster rapper portray the role of a Jewish loan shark which was sketched by Dickens back in the 19th century.

The film will have contemporary twists starting with the musical being titled Oliver!, complete with a genre-hopping soundtrack that will of course include hip-hop.
