First Look: Adrien Brody & Forest Whitaker in The Experiment
Haven't heard of The Experiment? Don't worry, there are always plenty of great indies you've never heard of! Our friends at Bloody-Disgusting got their hands on a few new photos from The Experiment at AFM. The film, which is a remake of Oliver Hirschbiegel's Das Experiment, is about a group of ordinary people who are chosen to participate in the roles of guards and prisoners in a psychological study that examines how the effects of assigned roles, power, and control affect the participants. Obviously it spins out of control. Adrien Brody, Forest Whitaker, Elijah Wood, Cam Gigandet, Clifton Collins Jr. and Maggie Grace all star in this.
I love these types of films. I'm already reminded of The Killing Room, which is another great "experiment" film, and I need to watch the original Das Experiment before this as well. There's also another German film called The Wave that played at a few festivals that I missed. These photos are all that is needed to sell me on this. Brody and Whitaker look awesome, Gigandet looks terrible as usual, but I think I'll get passed that. Now I just want to see what Maggie Grace looks like. Is she the only one without tattoos participating in this crazy experiment? The Experiment is both written and directed by Paul Scheuring ("Prison Break" writer).
