01

A story of incredibly well-off people doing terribly bad things, Posh feels very timely – and we have the first look at the dapper and dangerous gents starring in the new film from Lone Scherfig, director of An Education.

The beautiful boys in penguin suits include Max Irons and Sam Claflin as Miles and Alistair, first years at Oxford University determined to join the notorious Riot Club – a place that can make or break your time in higher education and, quite possibly, life. During the course of a night at the Bull’s Head pub, ambition and avarice lead them down a dark path.

Posh is scripted by Laura Wade, adapted from her own play, which opened during the 2010 General Election, where audiences and critics weren’t shy in drawing comparisons between the fictional Riot Club and the Bullingdon Club, of which Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson were members. Yet Scherfig says there is no direct correlation in characters; we won’t be pointing to garrulous but sinister men with straw blond hair thinking “He seems familiar…”

“No, not at all,” says the Danish director. “Also, if you see things that are horrific in this film you shouldn’t blame the Bullingdon Club. Or the other way around… You may see things that are charming in Posh and think maybe that is the way the Bullingdon Club is as well!”

The aim, according to Scherfig, is to make a broader film about power and class – one that grips and amuses, as well as provokes. “It’s more dynamic and energetic and dramatic and tough than the films I’ve done previously.”

Audiences can find out for themselves when Posh opens on September 19, also starring Holliday Grainger, Sam Reid, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer and Jessica Brown-Findlay. (@)

Holliday Grainger looks set to star in period romance Tulip Fever.

The British actress is in talks about joining Christoph Waltz and Alicia Vikander in the adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s romance novel, reported The Wrap.

The movie is set in Amsterdam in the 17th century and follows a married woman (Alicia) who is having an affair with an artist who is painting her, and plots to run away with him.

Holliday would have a supporting role as a maid in the film, which will be directed by Justin Chadwick.

Pre-production is due to begin in April.

The movie adaptation has been in the pipeline for some time, and at one stage Keira Knightley and Jude Law were linked to the project.

Justin Chadwick is directing the Weinstein Company’s adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s beloved romance novel

Hot off a well-reviewed turn as a femme fatale in A&E’s miniseries “Bonnie and Clyde,” British actress Holliday Grainger is in negotiations to star alongside Christoph Waltz in the Weinstein Company’s period drama “Tulip Fever,” TheWrap has learned.

Justin Chadwick (“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”) is directing the adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s beloved romance novel. Alison Owen of British banner Ruby Films (“Saving Mr. Banks”) is producing the long-gestating film with Harvey Weinstein, as “Tulip Fever” has been a passion project for Owen.

Set in 17th century Amsterdam, the story follows a married woman (Grainger) who begins a passionate affair with an artist hired to paint her portrait. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together.

Waltz, who signed on earlier this month, has called the script “brilliant” and expects “Tulip Fever” to be his next project, though his role remains unknown. Pre-production is scheduled to begin in April.

“Tulip Fever” has been a talent magnet for years, as Keira Knightley and Jude Law had been eyed to star in a previous incarnation of the project, which has interested directors such as Tom Hooper, John Madden and Peter Chelson over the years. Alicia Vikander had also been circling Chadwick’s adaptation though it appears that TWC has moved on.

Grainger is no stranger to well-known love stories, having previously appeared in Cary Fukunaga’s “Jane Eyre,” Joe Wright’s “Anna Karenina” and Mike Newell’s “Great Expectations,” in which she played the female lead.

The 25 year-old British actress, who played Jeremy Irons’ daughter Lucrezia Borgia on Showtime’s “The Borgias,” will soon be seen in Disney’s “Cinderella” and Lone Scherfig’s indie thriller “Posh.” She’s repped by WME, LBI Entertainment and Troika.

Holliday says what means being British to the magazine Vogue It.

"I think the reason why I’ve always enjoyed acting is the element of escapism, like you get with a good book. When there’s that added element of being in a different time period, it just adds an extra level of escapism."

Holliday Grainger has admitted it was “fun” playing an ugly sister in the new Disney adaptation of Cinderella.

The Bonnie And Clyde star and Downton Abbey’s Sophie McShera will play the vain, snooty daughters of the wicked step queen, played by Cate Blanchett, in the film directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Holliday joked: “I don’t know what I’m allowed to say – I think there’s somebody from Disney following me around with a sniper rifle listening in to all my interviews at the moment.

“It’s going to be a proper epic fairytale film, it’s going to be beautiful. And it was definitely an amazing experience working on such a huge scale production.

“Going from something like Bonnie And Clyde [the new TV miniseries which she stars in with Emile Hirsch] where it’s minimal crew and fast paced shooting, and certain things like they couldn’t afford a sign that said ‘school’ for one scene outside a school.

“And then you go onto something like Cinderella and there’s these huge beautiful, intricate sets and every detail is there and planned. You feel like you’re walking into another world, someone else’s world for a time, and wandering around being amazed by it all.”

::Holliday stars in Bonnie And Clyde which continues on Lifetime UK on Thursday, February 13 at 9pm.
