Mel Gibson is teaming up with his old Maverick mate Jodie Foster for The Beaver.
Foster’s directing (the first time since 1995) and will co-star with Gibson in the dark comedy that topped Hollywood’s “Blacklist” – the hottest unproduced scripts of the year last December.
Penned by Kyle Killen, the film finds a depressed sort (Gibson) who finds some measure of happiness by, er, wearing a beaver puppet on his hand.
Foster will have to deal with the new situation as the bloke’s wife.
It’s apparently been set up as an indie, with zero financing in place, though with Foster and – for all his controversial antics in the last few years – Gibson attached – it’s likely it’ll get some money thrown its way soon enough.
Oh, and no... We really didn't consider "Mel Likes Jodie's Beaver" as a headline. Promise.
Foster and Gibson back together… A good thing?
