Pop superstar Adele has suggested that she may not tour again, but she’s leaving the door open to acting! Adele is reportedly considering an offer to star in a big screen remake of the iconic musical Oliver! U.K. impresario, Cameron Mackintosh, who owns the theatre rights to Lionel Bart’s stage show based on Charles Dickens’ novel Oliver Twist, has been trying to get a new Oliver! movie off the ground for several years. According to a source close to Adele, she is considering taking a significant part in his new adaptation, possibly the starring role of Nancy – a petty criminal and prostitute who looks after the orphaned Oliver. “It would be a new challenge for her, but one she would definitely be up for” the insider told British tabloid The Sun. The original 1968 movie starred Shani Wallis as Nancy, Oliver Reed as her abusive lover Bill Sikes, Ron Moody as crime chief Fagin and Mark Lester as Oliver. It won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
