Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #176. Lone Scherfig’s Posh


Director: Lone Scherfig
Writer: Lone Scherfig
Producers: Graham Broadbent, Peter Czernin
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger

Lone Scherfig returns to burgeoning female adulthood with this adaptation of Laura Wade’s play, again employing a number of rising stars in her cast yet to receive a breakout role. While Scherfig has an intriguingly varied filmography already, we’re curious to see what she’ll do with this dramatic thriller.

Gist: Two first-year students at Oxford University join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening. .

Release Date: Universal Pictures International has the UK distribution rights and is tied up with a September release — we’re thinking that an early look might help occur prior to an eventual Fall Fest showing, leading to an eventual theatrical release stateside.
