Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster - Mmm, Nice Beaver.

Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster are getting back together 15 years after Maverick for the $18 million comedy The Beaver reports Variety.

Gibson will play a depressed man who finds solace in wearing a beaver hand-puppet. Kind of like Lars and the Real Girl. Steve Carell and Jim Carrey had both been interested in the role.

Foster will both direct the film and play the role of the man's wife. The actress brought the project to Gibson herself.

Kyle Killen penned the script which made last year's coveted Blacklist. Steve Golin and Keith Redmon will produce.

Shooting begins this September in New York City.

Gibson's going back to acting after directing, drinking and saying dodgy things. Foster is going back to directing after a bit of acting and sauciness in A Very Long Engagement.

Should be quite interesting to see how Gibson is received after his divorce and poor choice of words.
