Gibson flashes Beaver

09.29.2009

OK that was the last punny headline for THE BEAVER I'll write, I promise. Now that that's out of the way, we have our first look at pics from the set of the aforementioned upcoming Mel Gibson film about the beaver handpuppet. I was lucky enough to read the script a few months back and it really is all it has been buzzed about (though not nearly as funny as you'd expect from a movie about a man who lives with a beaver puppet on his hand).

Jodie Foster is currently directing the film in upstate New York and she also stars with Gibson, Anton Yelchin and Jennifer Lawrence. Strangely enough the look of the titular beaver is pretty much how I expected him to look. Though I'm more curious to hear the Beaver, which is described as having "a crisp English accent" but obviously in Gibson's voice (as he clearly is working the puppet). You can check out more pics from the set at this site here.

Extra Tidbit: I thought Steve Carell would've been great in the role but Gibson really is a perfect choice.

It's so nice to see Gibson acting again. He's always been one of my favorites.

I REALLY want Gibson to pull this off. This is one of those roles that's so offbeat that since it's played with seriousness it could earn him an Oscar nod.

Amazing

This is a great idea. It's good to see Mel back in the acting although I would love to see one more Lethal Weapon. A really dark one like the 1st one. [link]

Probably funnier than Harvey remake

That picture cracks me up. Ok so I'm easily amused but the idea of Mel Gibson with a hand puppet is like something out of South Park.

Ive been neutral about that project for a long time but Im starting to like it. Jodie Foster is smart and she should do a fine job directing. And Mel Gibson was always good in goofier role, even though, here Im guessing his character is psychologically affected and probably also a bit pathetic. I like the grey hair.
