Mel Gibson’s personal life over the past few months may seem bizarre enough, and considering what we’ve heard of it from tabloids, as well as straight from the horse’s mouth, what is being called the film to “resurrect his career” isn’t that big of a stretch from where we’ve seen his life leading as of late.
The Beaver, directed by Jodie Foster, is about a “troubled husband and executive [who] adopts a beaver hand-puppet as his sole means of communicating.”
Seriously, couldn’t you see Mel Gibson doing that sort of thing now? I know I would surely believe it and in the background would be Whoopi Goldberg and Jodie Foster assuring people everywhere that he’s really such a stand-up guy and recalling the many times he has been to their house for dinner. Speaking of which, in case you were wondering why Jodie Foster has went on-record so many times to convince people that Mel Gibson is great is because he is starring in this movie that she just so happens to be directing. Foster absolutely needs the public to like Mel Gibson in order to justify paying to see him act in her movie opening weekend.
I know you’ve been waiting for it, so check out the official trailer for The Beaver below:
The Beaver is scheduled for a Spring 2011 U.S. release.
