Gibson Puts Hand Up For Foster’s “Beaver”

“Maverick” stars Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster are re-teaming for the $18 million comedy “The Beaver” reports Variety.

Gibson will play a depressed man who finds solace in wearing a beaver hand-puppet.

Foster will both direct the film and play the role of the man’s wife. The actress brought the project to Gibson herself.

Kyle Killen penned the script which made last year’s coveted Blacklist. Steve Golin and Keith Redmon will produce.

Shooting kicks off this September in New York City.
