Disney are hoping to cast Adele to play Nancy in their movie version of the stage musical Oliver! – based on Charles Dickens’ classic Oliver Twist.
They have one condition though, the Grammy Award winner will have to audition, just like anyone else.
According to The Sun, Adele will not be given any special treatment, as she will have to audition for the role.
A source said, “Bosses are still really keen to get Adele on board. They know she has a world class voice but want to see if she can sustain that while also acting and dancing.
“It’s going to be a huge production and they need to cast the right people with enough stamina. There’s been a few bumps in the road on the project but everybody is quietly hopeful that once they get Adele in front of the panel they can move forward.”
According to reports, Disney are also lining up Eddie Redmayne to play the iconic role of Fagin, Oliver’s crooked mentor.
The production has been in the works since 2015, and will be helmed by director Toby Haynes.
