    If there is one thing Mel Gibson understands, it is damnation. The once-lauded actor was able to bring the concept to life in The Passion of the Christ, before the scandals that knocked him from his Hollywood throne and moral pulpit. In The Beaver, directed by and co-starring Jodie Foster, Gibson portrays a man crippled at first by regret and depression, then by the domination of a strange creature that was to be his salvation. Walter Black (Gibson) lies on his bed, paralyzed from what doctors diagnose as depression, although medical labels are inadequate for his existential crisis. The toy...

The surprising rationale behind the rebranding plan wasn't revealed in a statement issued yesterday announcing that the magazine -- being relaunched under the name Canada's History -- would hit newsstands in April. But Deborah Morrison, president of Canada's National History Society and the longtime publisher of The Beaver, told Canwest News Service...

    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...
