The Beaver is getting closer to finally being released...overseas, that is.
A poster for the Mel Gibson flick, directed by and costarring his good friend Jodie Foster, hit the Internet this morning, but...
It's not an official poster. In short, Summit Entertainment created it as a possibility to be used by the movie's foreign distributors, none of which have announced a release date.
The black comedy stars Gibson as a man who forms a very close friendship with a beaver hand puppet. "Hello," reads a handwritten note Gibson is holding in the poster. "This person is under the care of a prescription puppet. Please treat him as you normally would, but address yourself to the puppet."
The poster was distributed at The American Film Market trade conference currently taking place in Santa Monica.
As we've told you, The Beaver apparently recouped its $20 million budget in foreign sales that took place before Gibson's private life imploded.
Foster told us last month that the movie was done, "so now we're waiting."
