After successfully making the move from actor to screenwriter with the critically acclaimed STOKER, Relativity Media has tasked the former Prison Breaker to pen its latest acquisition, SCARE ME. The high concept thriller, due out soon from the friendly folks at genre publishing house Angry Robot Books, is written by Richard Parker (the former TV writer/script editor, not the tiger from LIFE OF PI) and tells the tale of a businessman targeted by an internet savvy killer. Here’s the official synopsis in full:
“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…"
