In these days of recycled plots and endless remakes, it's always refreshing to see news about studios willing to go in original directions. Take Universal, for example -- they recently picked up the rights to Agony, a horror pitch from Tales from the Crypt and The Outer Limits vet Scott Nimerfro. What's it about, you ask? Well, because the story is just that new and shocking, the studio is keeping details tightly under wraps. We can, however, report that the movie will be "set in the world of urban legends on college campuses, with one horrifying legend in particular turning out to be true." Wait -- an urban legend that comes true? And college kids? Brilliant! Why hasn't anyone thought of thatbefore?

Nimerfro is currently work on the secret script; the film will be produced by Scott Stuber and Mary Parent via their Universal-based company.
