Posh to be made into feature film

Posh, the critically-acclaimed and controversial West End play written by Laura Wade, set around the Riot Club, a drinking society made up of Oxford University's privileged elite, is to be made into a film.

Lone Scherfig, the director of An Education and One Day is on board to direct the feature, from a script written by Laura Wade. The film is currently casting.

Posh follows 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 stage play premiered at the Royal Court in 2010 and then had a West End run at the Duke of York Theatre in 2012. The young cast included Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Kit Harington, and Joshua McGuire.

Posh the film is being produced by Blueprint Pictures with BFI Film Fund and Film4 as co-developers.

Director Lone commented,“Posh invites us into a uniquely fascinating and hilarious world to which none of us would normally have access. But this elite and refined world is not what it first seems, especially when its members are ‘chateau’ed and provoked….”

Posh is set to start shooting in May.

    1. Robert Pattinson isn't going to be in it, but Holliday Grainger and Natalie Dormer will be starring alongside Max and Douglas.
