Mel Gibson will star in The Beaver for director Jodie Foster, reports Variety. Kyle Killen wrote the script.
Gibson will play a depressed man who finds solace in wearing a beaver hand-puppet. On top of directing, Foster will play the role of the man’s wife.
Foster boarded the project and brought it to Gibson, with whom she co-starred in 1994’s Maverick.
Producers are pushing for a September start date in New York.
