Paul_Giamatti.jpgOscar-snubbed Sideways star Paul Giamatti is close to signing to star in M. Night Shayamalan's Lady in the Water, as an apartment building superintendent who finds a "sea nymph" (is that the same thing as a mermaid?) floating in the complex pool. Bryce Dallas Howard, late of the director's The Village and Nicole Kidman's replacement in Lars Von Trier's Manderlay, will likely play the nymph in question. Warner Brothers is expected to make formal offers to both actors today; they hope to start shooting in August.
