Indian origin director Manoj Night Shyamalan is working on a children's book to go with his upcoming movie Lady in the Water.

The movie is based on a bedtime story Shyamalan wrote for his children and centres on an apartment building superintendent who rescues what he thinks is a woman from the pool he maintains.

When he discovers that she is actually a character from a bedtime story who is trying to make the journey back to her home, he works with his tenants to protect his new friend from the creatures that are determined to keep her in his world.

The film version of the story is scheduled to hit theatres July 21 and stars Paul Giamatti as the superintendent and Bryce Dallas Howard as the lady.
