The Beaver is an upcoming dark comedy based on an original script by neophyte screenwriter Kyle Killen. The film is directed by Jodie Foster and stars Mel Gibson, Anton Yelchin, and Foster. The Beaver follows a depressed CEO of a toy company (Mel Gibson) who dons a beaver handpuppet to better communicate with his wife (Jodie Foster) and his two sons (Anton Yelchin, Riley Thomas Stewart). The script by Killen topped the 2008 Blacklist, a ranking of the best unproduced screenplays.[1]
