Mel Gibson has had to endure questions about his stability following a string of controversies. Now he is preparing to relaunch his career by playing a man who befriends a hand-puppet beaver after suffering a breakdown.
The trailer for Gibson's new film, The Beaver, received its premiere on US television this weekend, amid doubts that it would be the ideal role to kick-start the actor's rehabilitation.
Gibson plays Walter Black, a lonely man who is depressed after being abandoned by his family. He begins communicating through the puppet, which he gives a personality and a British accent.
The film was directed by Jodie Foster, who co-stars as Gibson's wife Meredith. It is rumoured to be surprisingly good, despite its inauspicious premise.

I heard Jodie Foster likes beavers.
Doesn't sound like much of a stretch for Mel.
A complete rip off of Jane and the Truth Snake from Coupling.
This movie is probably just a home video of his daily activities.
So after the divorce he got custody of the beaver?
Heard the same thing here, believe they have to be bushy ones, Gibson would have been better served if his character would follow along the lines of the teacher on South Park, gone partly bald and had a sex change operation as well.
Ya beat me to it...
So, I’m left with no other choice but...
“Ward, you were a little hard on the Beaver last night”
Everyone makes mistakes.
He ought to return to what he does best - producing Epic Tales of Courage. JUST DO IT, MEL. Screw 'em.
Mel has set a new standard for middle age crazy.
Ward, you were a little hard on the Beaver last night
Movies about beavers are always a winner in my book
I hope this movie does not a beaver crucifixion in it though
“Two beavers enter, one beaver leaves.”
