Stephen Williams, whose directing credits include episodes of  Watchmen,  The Walking Dead,  Lost, and more, is set to helm Universal’s new monster movie  Don’t Go in the Water. There are zero plot details at the moment, but it’s safe to assume from the monster movie distinction and the title that this is going to be some sort of aquatic horror movie – and we could always use more of those.

Variety has the scoop on  Don’t Go in the Water, described simply as a “suspenseful monster movie” from director Stephen Williams.  Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy is producing, along with Dan Levine for 21 Laps Entertainment, while Adam Kolbrenner will produce for Lit Entertainment Group. Adam Rodin is executive producing.

Williams directed two  Watchmen episodes – “She Was Killed by Space Junk”, which featured the now-infamous giant Dr. Manhattan dildo, and “This Extraordinary Being”, one of the most memorable episodes of the series, in which Regina King’s Angela relives her grandfather’s memories via a drug trip. That episode was highly renowned for its unique visual style, so it’s great to see Williams branch out into a big movie. Save for 1995’s  Soul Survivor, all his other credits are in TV.

I wish I could tell you more about the  Don’t Go in the Water plot, but there simply isn’t anything to tell. However, the title certainly suggests this is some sort of aquatic horror film, and that’s a sub-genre I always enjoy. Earlier this year we saw the release of  Underwater, a surprisingly fun undersea monster movie starring Kristen Stewart.

Other entries include  DeepStar Six,  Leviathan,  Deep Rising, and more. Hell, you can even include every shark movie under that banner as well – all the  Jaws flicks,  The Shallows, Deep Blue Sea, and so on. The only real prerequisite is that the plot involves unlucky characters either on a boat or in some sort of underwater location being plagued by danger. It doesn’t even have to be monster-based danger. There’s  Dead Calm, where the danger is  Billy Zane. Hell, go ahead and include  Titanic in there, I don’t care. There are no more rules anymore, folks. Anything goes these days.
