Three months ago, we reported that David Oyelowo will be making his directorial debut with The Water Man. Oyelowo is pulling triple duty on the movie — producing, directing and starring in it — with his Selma co-star, Oprah Winfrey executive producing.
Described as a tonal mix between Stand By Me, E.T. and Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, The Water Man revolves around Gunner, a young boy who tries to find the titular character, whose power to cheat death might help save his dying mother.
The cast includes Rosario Dawson as Gunner’s mother; This Is Us’ Lonnie Chavis as Gunner; War for the Planet of the Apes’ Amiah Miller as Jo; and Oyelowo as Amos, Gunner’s father. The movie will also star Alfred Molina (Vice) and Maria Bello (History of Violence).
The script for The Water Man will be written by up-and-coming filmmaker, Emma Needell. Production starts next month, and we will be looking out for more updates. For now, however, no official release date has been set.
