The Royal Court's summer 2012 West End-transfer production of Posh was described as, "In an oak-panelled room in Oxford, ten young bloods with cut-glass vowels and deep pockets are meeting, intent on restoring their right to rule. Members of an elite student dining society, the boys are bunkering down for a wild night of debauchery, decadence and bloody good wine. But this isn't just a jolly: they're planning a revolution. Welcome to the Riot Club."
Irons (The Host) is being considered for the lead role. Claflin will next appear in part two of the Hunger Games franchise, Catching Fire. Booth's credits include BBC's version of Great Expectations and the upcoming Romeo and Juliet. Pattinson will finish filming for Outback in Australia next week.
