Madonna sold on cell block drama, USA

LOS ANGELES – The Material Girl can’t resist the lure of prison.

Madonna’s Maverick Films is getting ready to produce a feature based on the shocking real-life university scandal known as the 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the early `70s, Professor Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University set out to examine the psychology of evil by placing a dozen college students into a prison setting – with half playing the guards and half playing the inmates.

The experiment was brought to a screeching halt when it was discovered that the subjects were becoming too involved with the mentality of their roles in a surprisingly short time.

It is unclear whether this project is associated with the Lee Tamahori-directed “The Stanford Prison Experiment” currently in production at 20th Century Fox.

Madonna also serves as executive producer for the teen spy adventure sequel “Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London,” which opens nationwide on Friday, March 12.
