Mr. Sugar Tits himself, Mel Gibson, will be starring in The Beaver. Jodie Foster will be directing the film written by Kyle Killen.
Gibson will play a depressed man who finds solace in wearing a beaver hand-puppet (Mr. Garrison and Mr. Hat?). As well as directing, Foster will play the man’s wife.
It was Foster who brought Gibson to the project. The two co-starred together in Maverick.
The project has had several star/director combos circling over the past few months including Steve Carell and Jay Roach.
This will be Foster’s third directorial outing after Little Man Tate and Home for the Holidays.
