Loins Melt as Robert Pattinson, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, and Max Irons Look to Get ‘Posh’

Written by on March 15, 2013 

In the sort of movement which feels like many a Tiger Beat reader’s fantasy pitch to some movie studio, The Daily Mail have been handed word that (brace yourselves) Robert Pattinson, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth (Noah, Jupiter Ascending), and Max Irons (The Host) are circling the same project. One that they’d be in. Together.

Not exactly what you’d have in mind, however. What we speak of here is Posh, the recently-boarded-by-Lone Scherfig film based on London’s hit stage play, originally written (now also adapted) by Laura Wade. A smaller undertaking than this line of up-and-coming stars would typically suggest, its events concern a group known as The Riot Club, a fictional Oxford fraternity whose two newest inductees, freshmen Alistair and Miles, get an inside peek into over the course of one particularly bad night. Much of it takes place withing a single space, too, with Posh showing their ten members commiserate in an English country pub, one which they eventually destroying much of in drunken bouts of ugly misogyny. Tough, but something that might be a lot of fun to watch — when you look at it from a certain angle.

I am being serious: the prospect of four teen heartthrobs getting ugly with one another is enticing for many reasons — almost a classier, reverse-Gender, English version of Spring Breakers — though, sadly, it might not happen as is hoped. Schedules are the cause, unsurprisingly, with Pattinson (who’s only started to look this over), for example, having new movies from David Cronenberg and James Marsh eyeing production soon; Posh is expected to start up in May, so delays and / or tight maneuvering will be required. Even if they can’t land this whole contingent, a solid director and ripe story should do the creative trick.

Does this cast list create a spark of interest in Posh?
