Relativity Media has acquired Scare Me, a psychological thriller novel, and is setting Wentworth Miller (Stoker) to write the script, reports Deadline.
The book is in the vein of Se7en, and it will be published in the spring by Angry Robot.
“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…”
Miller is the actor who starred in the Fox series “Prison Break” who made his screenwriting debut on Stoker, the Chan-wook Park-directed thriller for Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush. It was brought in by Relativity Media production president Robbie Brenner.
