Release Date for Mel Gibson's Comeback Flick "The Beaver" Postponed
You will have to wait a little longer to see Mel Gibson make his triumphant big screen comeback. The release of his latest movie co-starring Jodie Foster, The Beaver, has been pushed back.
The film, which stars Mel as a man down on his luck (fitting?) who resorts to befriending a beaver hand puppet to cope with his life, was slated to hit theaters on March 23. But now The Beaver is landing on the silver screen May 6, with a bigger release on May 20, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Reportedly, Summit Entertainment switched the release date to accommodate Jodie's schedule — she directed and co-starred with Mel in the dramedy.
She will be busy shooting the film God of Carnage.
The Beaver may not hit theaters until May, but the film will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on March 16.
