So The Beaver will take a bite at the box office after all. The Mel Gibson comedy will be released in theaters Spring 2011, Summit Entertainment confirmed to EW. The project, directed by and co-starring Jodie Foster, was set to be released in 2010, but was shelved in lieu of accusations of abuse against Gibson by ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. A trailer for the film, centered on a man who talks to a beaver puppet affixed to his hand, will air Friday on Entertainment Tonight. Now the only question is whether or not audiences will eat up the film, regardless of the Gibson drama.
