The Hollywood Reporter – Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder are starring in Experimenter, The Stanley Milgram Story, an indie drama written and directed by Michael Almereyda.
The movie will start shooting June 5 in New York and is being produced by Uri Singer of B.B. Films, Fabio Golombek of F.J. Productions, and Intrinsic Valueâ€™s Aimee Schoof and Isen Robbins.
According to the producers, the script is based on “the true story of famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram, who in 1961 designed the controversial Obedience Experiments at Yale University, observing the responses of ordinary people who believed they were sending harmful electrical shocks to an affable stranger.
“The experiments were about conformity and authority, and their implications continue to be deeply unsettling and resonant. But this was just the start of a wide-ranging career for Milgram, who also came up with the Small-World Experiment, the basis for Six Degrees of Separation.”
Sarsgaard is playing Milgram, while Ryder is playing one of his students, Sasha Menkin, who helps with the experiments and with whom he falls in love.
Do you remember when Winona did Drunk History a few months ago? It seems she will be doing it again.
John Lithgow has posted on his Twitter about doing something with Winona and Jack Black for Drunk History.
Can’t wait to hear more about it. Thanks, once again, Chris B for the heads up!
Time flies! This year Heathers is turning 25 years old, and Entertainment Weekly gave us a really great interview with Winona, Christian Slater, producer Denise Di Novi, Director Michael Lehmann and writer Daniiel Waters.
Winona Ryder – I’ve always held the original script of Heathers among the great literature that I’ve ever read. For me, it’s like Ezra Pound, Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, and Daniel Waters, you know?

Winona Forever is my passion project, created due a wish to have a place to reunite fans and show my appreciation on this amazing actress. And here we are, 10 years later. Thanks everyone who’s with us since our first post!
To celebrate, as you can see, we have a new layout featuring the gorgeous images published on Red magazine. I had other things planned, but unfortunately, it didn’t work. I hope you like the layout, tho!
