According to a report from The Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye, Irons was circling the project alongside Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Douglas Booth (Romeo and Juliet) and Robert Pattinson — who is said to be in very early discussions. According to THR‘s source, “I think he’s being circled more than he’s circling.”
Posh, a play by Laura Wade that launched the careers of Kit Harington, Joshua McGuire, Tom Milsom and David Dawson, centers around the fictional Riot Club — an elite Oxbridge dining society — which meets regularly in a private dining room of a pub. The film is being helmed by An Education director Lone Scherfig.
Posh opened at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2010.
Irons previously starred in Red Riding Hood and can be seen in Andrew Niccol‘s The Host opposite Saoirse Ronan later this month. He is repped by UTA and Tavistock Wood Management in the U.K.
