Mel Gibson continues to work amidst crisis

HollywoodNews.com: In the face of ugly physical abuse allegations, Mel Gibson returned to work last week in New York on the set of “The Beaver.”

The $20 million comedy directed by Jodie Foster was filmed last fall but didn’t test well. Foster’s directorial projects are often quirky, niche fare; her last film 1995’s “Home for the Holidays” made $17.5 million at the domestic box office.

In “The Beaver,” Gibson plays a guy who communicates through a hand-puppet.

A Page Six insider on the Gotham set described the atmosphere around Gibson when the nasty news about his relationship with Oksana Grigorieva hit: “Mel was in complete shock. Everyone was walking on eggshells around him. It was the weirdest set ever.”

    I hope that the studio and the production company has plenty of money to burn because I think that this movie is DOA when it premieres in the theaters.
