Paul T. Scheuring (of "SERIOUSLY, PAUL T. SCHEURING, I WILL CUT YOU" infamy re: Prison Break) is writing and directing the American remake of Das Experiment, which was a German movie loosely based on the Stamford Prison Experiment. It's got Elijah Wood, Forest Whitaker, Cam Gigandet and Adrien Brody.
I gotta tell you, I am cautiously excited about this. I actually like Scheuring's stuff, for all that I occasionally (okay, often) want to stab him, and--I mean, it's based on the Stamford Prison Experiment! When you give people power and no real supervision, they tend to go kind of crazy! Also, Forest Whitaker!
