Lone Scherfig

British stars in talks for adaptation of the controversial play.

Max Irons (‘The Host’), Sam Claflin (‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’), Douglas Booth (‘Noah’) and Robert Pattinson (‘The Twilight Saga’) are reportedly in various stages of negotiations to star in a big screen adaptation of Laura Wade’s hit stage play, ‘Posh.’

Set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University the play focuses on the fictional “Riot Club.” At the centre are Miles and Alistair, two first year students determined to join the infamous Riot Club where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.

The Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye is hearing from insiders close to production that Irons is being sought for one of the main parts.

‘An Education’ director Lone Scherfig is on board to helm, with Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin producing. Scherfig and the producers are looking to get the film before cameras by May.
