Here’s a new update to Max’s most recent upcoming project with new cast additions!
Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Max Irons (The Host) and Douglas Booth (Great Expectations) have signed to star in Lone Sherfig’s Posh, the film based on the British West End hit play by Laura Wade.
The story is set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University and follows two first year students determined to join the infamous Riot Club where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.
The Host will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 9, 2013 and you can go ahead an pre-order it HERE on amazon or at any other retailer. We hope there will be plenty of extra features and, of course, you can expect full coverage here on the site.
If you’re a Macy’s shopper, expect to see Max gracing a poster or two in their men’s department!
Macy’s has snagged English actor Max Irons to be the new face of its INC men’s collection. Irons, who will play the leading male role of Jared in “The Host,” a film adaptation of “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer’s science fiction novel, in 2013, will appear in the brand’s spring 2012 men’s campaign. It will be shot by Walter Chin and styled by Bill Mullen. A graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Irons is the son of Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons, and the grandson of Cyril Cusack. In addition to still images, the INC campaign will include a short video of the actor discussing his personal style and self-expression.
A big congratulations to Max as he has snagged the role of Jared Howe in Stephenie Meyer’s The Host. He will be acting opposite Saoirse Ronan and Jake Abel. We are so thrilled and we can’t wait to see him in action!
The fifth and final Twilight film may be scheduled to release next November, but Stephenie Meyer ain’t done with you yet. Her best-selling 2008 science-fiction novel The Host — her only non-Twilight work to date — is in the process of being turned into a film, so expect to hear plenty of news about it between now and its March 29, 2013 release date. In fact, here’s some right now: The important role of Jared Howe will be played by 26-year-old actor Max Irons, EW has learned.
Irons, son of Oscar-winning and golden-throated actor Jeremy Irons, was last seen in this year’s Red Riding Hood. For this project, he joins director Andrew Niccol (In Time, Gattaca) and the long-attached Saoirse Ronan, who will play Melanie Stryder, a young woman who shares her body with an alien force known as Wanderer. Since no Meyer novel is complete without some complicated relationship geometry, Jake Abel has been cast in the role of Ian, a man who falls in love with Wanderer despite the fact that she is in the body of Melanie who is in love with Jared. Fans of the book, may I suggest you start preparing your visual aids and PowerPoint explanations now.
The film will begin shooting in February in Louisiana and then New Mexico and will mark one of the first productions for Open Road Films, a young distribution company backed by AMC and Regal theater chains.
With the success of the Twilight saga, this could be huge for Max. We have our fingers crossed for him and we’ll keep you updated on the latest.
With the beginning of the end in sight for “The Twilight Saga,” author Stephenie Meyer is turning her attention to the casting search for “The Host,” Andrew Niccol’s feature adaptation of her sci-fi novel.
Saoirse Ronan (“Hanna”) is attached to star as protag Melanie Stryder, whose body is invaded by an alien named Wanderer, who will also be played by Ronan. In the coming days, producers will begin testing actors for the pic’s two male leads.
Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games”), Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”), Jai Courtney (“One Shot”) and Max Irons (“Red Riding Hood”) will test for the role of Jared, Melanie’s boyfriend. Dane DeHaan (“In Treatment”), Thomas McDonnell (“Prom”), Augustus Prew (“The Borgias”) and Ronan’s “Lovely Bones” co-star Jake Abel will test for the role of Ian, a menacing young man who brutalizes Wanderer before falling in love with her.
Chockstone Pictures principals Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz are producing with Nick Wechsler and Meyer. Inferno’s Marc Butan, Jim Seibel and Bill Johnson will exec produce, while Roger Schwartz will co-produce. “The Host” is being financed by the producers and Inferno, which is handling sales.
Excellent news about a new project for Max:
It’s dueling violins as two biopics on legendary Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi go head-to-head, with Boris Damast’s long-in-development project set to beat Patricia Riggen’s Vivaldi out of the gate.
Damast’s Vivaldi is set to begin shooting this September in Venice, Hungary, Germany and Bruges. Claire Foy (Season of the Witch) and Max Irons (Red Riding Hood) are attached to the project, with negotiations underway with Neve Campbell, Jacqueline Bisset, Elle Fanning, Tom Wilkinson, Alfred Molina and Sebastian Koch. Celsius Entertainment has picked up the project for international sales.
Damast’s script for Vivaldi, co-written with Jeffrey Freedman, tells the true story of how the composer turned a group of outcasts – the illegitimate daughters of courtesans – into an orchestra that eventually played for the Pope.
