First Look At Mel Gibson In Jodie Foster’s BEAVER

Beaver1(And here you thought all the double entendre headlines were done now that Kevin Smith’s Zack And Miri Make A Porno had came and went from theaters…)

No, Mel Gibson sporting a puppet on his hand does not mean he is recording a bit for Craig Ferguson’s Late, Late Show. He is currently filming the comedy The Beaver on location in New York City withh Jodie Foster directing.

The screenplay, which landed at the number 1 position on last year’s Black List round up of the best unproduced scripts making the rounds of Hollywood at the time, centers on a stressed-out guy who discovers that he can communicate more honestly through a beaver puppet he found in the trash. And while I’m usually not one to link to stories originating on a gossip site, I wanted to run the pictures today to show that such an outrageous concept was actually being made. (Hey, it’s not a sequel, a remake or an adaptation of a comic book.)  Click on over for a look at a few more.

According to today’s New York Daily News, which ran photos from this scene as well, the location was actually White Plains, NY. This makes it much cooler because it is closer to my house.

Yeah, Bill, I am sure there are many FBOL readers that want to see photos of Jodie Foster’s Beaver.
