Brody, Whitaker, Wood and Gigandet are part of The Experiment

Adrien Brody, Forest Whitaker, Elijah Wood and Cam Gigandet will star in The Experiment, a remake of the German psychological thriller Das Experiment for Inferno Entertainment and Magnet Media Group.

"Prison Break" creator Paul Scheuring is directing from his screenplay. Filming begins in Iowa next month.

"Das Experiment," 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. 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.

It is based on Dr. Philip Zimbardo’s 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment. Scheduled to last for two weeks, the experiment was terminated after six days.

Yet another remake heading our way then!
