After Little Man Tate (1991), and Home for the Holidays (1995), The Beaver will be the third project directed by Jodie Foster, she also stars alongside Mel Gibson. Both director/actor stars are in talking stage to secure the roles in the project.
The story centers on a grown man who wears a beaver puppet on his hand that he treats as a real person.
This is the second time director/actor stars joining on the big screen, last time the duo were sharing one movie was in 1994 in Maverick almost 15 years ago.
Anonymous Content's Steve Golin and Keith Redmon will produce the film. Producers are pushing for a September start date in New York.
