As BWW previously reported, Max Irons, Sam Claflin and Douglas Booth are also in negotiations to appear in Posh. Robert Pattinson was under consideration but has opted not to take part in the project. Irons (The Host) is being considered for the lead role, and Grainger, if she accepts the offer, would play his girlfriend.

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."

Grainger currently stars as 'Lucrezia Borgia' in The Borgias and appeared as 'Estella' in 2012's film version of Great Expectations. She has also appeared on the big screen in The Scouting Book for Boys, Anna Karenina, Bel Ami, Jane Eyre, and in the TV series Demons and Waterloo Road and Where the Heart Is, among many other credits.
