Gibson likes Beaver

“Maverick” co-stars Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster will reunite for “The Beaver”. Foster will also direct the picture.

Gibson will play a depressed man who finds solace in wearing a beaver hand-puppet. On top of helming, Foster will play the role of the man’s wife.

The script, written by Kyle Killen, topped the Blacklist in December. Steve Carell and Jay Roach had initially shown interest in the project.
