Remake of the German thriller
Adrien Brody, Forest Whitaker, Elijah Wood and Cam Gigandet signed on board last month. Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring is directing from his screenplay which is a remake of the German psychological thriller Das Experiment for Inferno Entertainment and Magnet Media Group.
The original, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, centered 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.
Scheuring’s film begins lensing this month.
