Brody, Whitaker Try An “Experiment”

Adrien Brody, Forest Whitaker, Elijah Wood and Cam Gigandet will star in the psychological thriller “The Experiment” for Inferno Entertainment and Magnet Media Group says Variety.

A remake of Oliver Hirschbiegel’s award-winning German film “Das Experiment”, the story centers on a group of ordinary men recruited to take on the roles of guards and prisoners as part of a research study and examined how the effects of assigned roles, power and control affected the participants.

Brody will portray the de facto leader of the prisoners while Whitaker will play a guard who’s corrupted by the power he’s given.

“Prison Break” creator Paul Scheuring is directing from his screenplay and shooting begins in Iowa next month.
