Magnolia Pictures has acquired North American rights to Michael Almereyda’s drama “Experimenter,” starring Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder.
Magnolia is planning a theatrical release later this year.
The film portrays Stanley Milgram’s experiment, in which subjects were made to believe they were administering electric shocks to others in order to test why people will cede to authority. The San Francisco International Film Festival announced Wednesday that “Experimenter” would be its closing night film on May 7.
“Experimenter” premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival. The cast includes Jim Gaffigan, Taryn Manning, Anton Yelchin, Kellan Lutz, John Leguizamo, Anthony Edwards, Josh Hamilton, Lori Singer, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Dennis Haysbert. The film was produced by Uri Singer, Fabio Golombek, Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof.
Winona attended last night in Utah the Awards Night Ceremony of Sundance Festival, as she was part of the jury. I have a few HQ images added, plus several additional pictures from The Experimenter premiere last weekend.
“The Experimenter” premiere in Sundance took place this Sunday (25) and Winona graced the red carpet all in black, as you can see in the pictures below:
While in Sundance Winona talked with MTV’s Joshua Horowitz and he asked about the interview Tim Burton did when promoting his fim ‘Big Eyes’. Her words? “Yeeeeaaaah!”
Other than it looks like it’s really happening. I’m so thrilled for Michael [Keaton] with everything, it couldn’t have happened to a greater guy, and ‘Birdman’ was so brilliant, and I loved him, and I would be so… I’m really, really excited.
Winona Ryder, Peter Sarsgaard & Kellan Lutz along with director John Leguizamo, discuss their new film, ‘Experimenter’ at Sundance 2015. Peter Sarsgaard says his character as lived life ‘one step out of this world so that he could see it.’
