Stoker screenwriter and former Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has signed on to adapt the upcoming Richard Parker novel Scare Me for Relativity Media. Here is the official description of the book, which will be published this April.

"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..."

As an actor, the multi-hyphenate also stars in the indie thriller The Loft, which doesn't have a release date set at this time. Aside from his starring role on Fox's Prison Break, Wentworth Miller has also starred in films such as Resident Evil: Afterlife and Underworld before making his screenwriting debut with the critically-acclaimed Stoker.
