Gibson and his "Maverick" co-star Jodie Foster are in talks to reunite for "The Beaver," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

(Variety, incidentally, says the pair are already committed to the film.)

The plot follows a man who lives with a beaver hand puppet; Gibson would play said man, and Foster would co-star as his wife while also taking on directorial duties.

Filming is scheduled to begin this November in New York.
