Mel Gibson - Images From "The Beaver"

Oh dear God... are Mel Gibson's glory days in the Lethal Weapon and Mad Max movies all but forgotten now?

The other day I posted about Dwaye "The Rock" Johnson appearing in the potential crapfest that is "Tooth Fairy", and now Mr. Gibson is set to start in a Jodie Foster directed movie called "The Beaver".

The Beaver is a film about Walter (Mel Gibson), a troubled father and husband and CEO of a stalling toy company [who gives voice to] The Beaver, a glove puppet that Walter finds, starts to wear continuously, and adopts as a kind of avatar through which he carries out all of his communication. Almost all of the dialogue given to the lead actor throughout the entire screenplay will have to come from the Beaver, and be delivered in what screenwriter Kyle Killen describes as a "crisp English accent."

Here are 3 images from the movie showing Mel and his Beaver... That sounds sooooo wrong...
