Wentworth Miller may have caused the ladies to swoon when he starred on the hit Fox series "Prison Break", but the cat has proved that he's a man of many talents when he penned the screenplay for Park Chan-wook's STOKER, which drew the actor-turned-writer a lot of attention. Now Deadline is reporting that Miller has been tapped by Relativity Media to adapt the upcoming novel SCARE ME.
Based on the book by Richard Parker, SCARE ME is said to be in the vein of SE7EN and the publisher's description goes like this:
“When did you last google yourself?” Wealthy businessman, Will Frost, gets woken in the middle of the night by an anonymous caller, asking him exactly this.
When Will goes online, he finds a website has been set up in his name, showing photographs of the inside of his home, along with photographs of six houses he’s never seen before. In the first of these strange houses, a gruesome murder has already taken place. Will is then told that his own family is in mortal danger. The only way he can keep them safe is to visit each of the houses on the website in person – before the police discover what has happened there.
Seven houses. Seven gruesome homicides. Seven chances to save his daughter’s life…
Scare Me is tale of modern urban terror, for anyone who’s ever worried that someone might one day use the internet to track them down and cause them and their family harm…"
Sounds pretty intriguing, eh? And considering the bang-up job Miller did with STOKER one could only imagine what he will be able to do with a set-up like that.
