An abundance of handsomeness could be in store for director Lone Scherfig’s (An Education) adaptation of Laura Wade‘s stage play PoshThe 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.
