The upcoming remake of Charles Dickens’ classic novel Oliver Twist has given us a second helping, not long after sharing a first look at Rita Ora’s character in the new movie.

In a brand new image of the Twist cast, we get to see Game of Thrones star Lena Headey in the role of Sikes. We’re also shown Sir Michael Caine, Rita Ora, and Raff Law as Fagin, Dodge, and Oliver Twist respectively.

Although we’ve been very much blessed with Twist‘s latest behind-the-scenes offering, we’re still going to say it… Please sir, can we have some more?

Twist, which will be available to watch on Sky on the same day it hits cinemas, has been billed as an adaptation of the Dickens story with a modern, well, twist.

The titular character has been reinvented as a streetwise artist living on the streets of modern-day London, whose chance encounter with a gang of grifters sees him caught up in a high-stakes art heist.

The gang – led by Ora’s Dodge – attempts to steal a priceless painting for the notorious thief Fagin (Caine) and his apparently “psychopathic” business partner Sikes (Headey).

Comedian David Walliams, Legends of Tomorrow‘s Franz Drameh, and Daybreak‘s Sophie Simnett are also on board for the remake.

While the “psychopathic” Sikes may not sound all that different from her Game of Thrones villain Cersei Lannister, Headey’s other upcoming role certainly does.

Confirmed earlier this year, the actress will also star in Rita, a drama based on a Danish series of the same name about an unorthodox teacher.

Game of Thrones seasons 1-8 are available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-ray now.
