Mel, Jodie Reunite for Beaver
E Online on Yahoo ^ | 7/10/09 | Josh Grossberg

Los Angeles (E! Online) – Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster are giving it another shot.

E! News can confirm that the Hollywood heavyweights, who last costarred in a movie together 15 years ago in Maverick, are set to join forces again for The Beaver.

A quirky comedy drama along the lines of 2007's indie hit Lars and the Real Girl (or, depending on your humor, South Park), the Kyle Killen-penned script follows a down-and-out man (Gibson) who finds comfort wearing a beaver hand puppet. Foster will not only play his wife, but she'll also helm the film, marking her first directing effort since 1995's Home for the Holidays.

Hoping to erase his high-profile 2006 DUI arrest and subsequent anti-Semitic rant from the minds of moviegoers, not to mention distract himself from his pending divorce, Gibson next appears in the forthcoming thriller Edge of Darkness, his first headlining role since 2000's What Women Want.

The Beaver is tentatively slated to start lensing in New York in September.

They made a great team with a lot of chemistry together. I even for a second believed that Jodie liked boys.

I hope “The Beaver” is just the working title.

He's gonna stick his hand in a beaver?

“(Gibson) who finds comfort wearing a beaver hand puppet.”

Why didn’t she get Pee Wee Herman?

Only Dave Barry could look at the old “Leave It To Beaver” show and wonder what it must have been like for Beaver Cleaver to go through boyhood being known as “The Beaver”.

So is this supposed to be a Mel Gibson thread or a Richard Gere thread?

I’m not surprised. I understand that Jodie Foster is a big fan of The Beaver.

I never watch old Rock Hudson movies. The fact that he was a fruit just ruins the movie for me when he is supposed be the lady killer.

I wont watch another Jody Foster movie again either where she plays a wife to anyone except another woman.

I guess it’s just me , but I also have problems with war movies where today’s Hollywood cowards who go around with their liberal agenda’s play war heroes.

I like hot women playing hot women, and men like Audie Murphy & Clark Gable real heroes playing heroes.

Their acting isnt good enough to make me forget they are fruits or liberal cowards who wouldnt think of joining the military.

Wynona she went and dyed that beaver
And beaver didn’t like the tint
He bit and scratched and threw a fit
Now we don’t know where he went...

I was soooo dissapointed when I found out that Jodie Foster was a lesbian. There was something very appealing to me about her mixture of intelligence and beauty. Why on earth do these hollywood types abandon normal male/female sex roles? For heavens sake, you’re a woman Jodie, your body and soul were intended to be matched with a male!

Me, too. She and I are the same age and I grew up watching her in Disney movies. She may have been my first crush. She has always been one of my favorites. Lesbo or not, I still think she's hot.

Made me think of Barbara Billingsley’s most famous line:

“Ward, I think you were a little too hard on the Beaver last night”.

You seem to be unclear on the meaning of “acting.”

“(Gibson) who finds comfort wearing a beaver hand puppet.”

Finally, the role model I never had while growing up. Maybe now I can have some self-esteem.

Not unclear at all. Reality just keeps me from enjoying a romance between a man and a woman, when I know the actors are not heterosexual
