Rogue Gets Infested By Sigler

Rogue Pictures and Random House Films have picked up the rights to Scott Sigler’s upcoming thriller novel “Infested” and its untitled sequel says The Hollywood Reporter.

The book follows a CIA black ops specialist and a Center for Disease Control scientist who team to contain a rapidly spreading parasite whose bite turns ordinary people into crazed serial killers.

The trail of corpses leads to an infected man who is fighting a bloody battle for control of his own mind and body.

The book is due to be published next spring, no writers have been hired to adapt as yet. Sigler is a novelist who, when his first novel “Earthcore” wasn’t picked up for publication due to 9/11, turned to podcasting and released the tomes “Ancestor” and “The Rookie.”
