Posted on

Star Trek‘s Anton Yelchin will star with Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster in indie dark comedy The Beaver, Variety reports. Yelchin plays the son of a depressed man (Gibson) who feels better when wearing a beaver hand puppet. Foster will play the unhappy wife/mom; she will also direct. Kyle Killen wrote the script, and Twilight‘s Summit Entertainment plans a release in late 2010 or early 2011.
