It all started with The DailyMail....
but then, The THe Playlist wrote about it... so... maybe... why not.... eventually...
but don't forget... a RUMOR is still a RUMOR... from who ever it comes from... until it is confirmed.... (or not... lol)
Will Robert riot with the Tory roaring boys?
Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth and Robert Pattinson are just four of the actors in various stages of negotiations to be in the film version of Laura Wade’s incendiary play Posh. Focusing on the fictional Riot Club, it explored an elite, refined world of privilege.
Posh opened at the Royal Court three years ago and later enjoyed a West End run. The film version is being directed by Lone Scherfig, who made An Education — the picture which helped to make Carey Mulligan a star.Pattinson is in very early discussions only. At the moment, he’s filming David Michod’s Outback western The Rover in Adelaide.
But when he finishes next week, the Posh script will be one of several he’ll be mulling over.

According to the ever-on-the-money Baz Bamigboye, Max Irons, Sam Claflin and Douglas Booth are all in negotiations to star in the film, and while talks are at an earlier stage, “Twilight” megastar Robert Pattinson could potentially join them. Nurse, my ovaries!
It sounds like Pattinson’s involvement is the least concrete; he’s still filming David Michod’s “The Rover,” and he has David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” and James Marsh’s “Hold On To Me” nominally on his slate, though lord knows what state they’re in in terms of financing. But a good piece of material, amid a strong ensemble, would be a smart move for the actor as he continues to try to escape the shadow of Edward Cullen. As Bamigboye suggests, the challenge here is going to be scheduling; the nature of the piece requires the cast to all be together round a dining table for much of the shoot, and all these guys are busy and in demand, so don’t be surprise if there’s mixing and matching with who sticks with the project. Filming is planned to get underway in May, so it shouldn’t be too long before we find out who’s able to fit it into their schedules, and “Posh” should eventually open in 2014.
An abundance of handsomeness could be in store for director Lone Scherfig’s (An Education) adaptation of Laura Wade‘s stage play Posh. The Daily Mail reports that Robert Pattinson, Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Douglas Booth (Noah), and Max Irons (The Host) are all in various stages of negotiations to star in the film. The story centers on a fictional Oxford fraternity called The Riot Club and focuses on two new freshman inductees getting an overview of the club during one night. The entirety of the story takes place in a private dining room, so it’ll be interesting to see how Scherfig translates the play to the screen.
Irons would take on the lead role in the film, but details regarding the other actors’ parts are unknown. No one has officially signed on yet, and Pattinson is expected to mull over the script once he wraps The Rover. As one can imagine, matching up the schedules of four up-and-comers is a bit of a logistical nightmare, so don’t set this cast lineup in stone just yet.and just in case....
here's the trailer of the play....
