Universal Pictures has picked up "Anguish," a pitch by Jake Wade Wall based on the 1987 Spanish horror film, Anguistia
Not only Universal Pictures has picked the rights to turn "Anguish", a pitch by Jake Wade Wall, into big screen adaptation, but also the studio has attached the persons to work behind. It has, among others, tapped Roy Lee and Doug Davison to produce through their Vertigo production company.
Based on the 1987 Spanish horror film "Anguistia", the story was a horror-movie-within-a-horror movie. As an audience in a small theater watches a film about an optometrist on a killing spree, a maniac begins killing the moviegoers.
