Anton Yelchin Joins Jodie Foster’s Beaver


Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Terminator Salvation) is co-starring with Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster in indie dark comedy The Beaver, with Foster directing.

Variety says Yelchin will play the son of Gibson’s and Foster’s characters. Gibson is playing a depressed man who finds solace in wearing a beaver hand-puppet; Foster will play his wife, whom the son lobbies to get a divorce.

The script, written by Kyle Killen, topped the Blacklist in December.

Jennifer Lawrence has also been cast.
