The Beaver to open May 6 Summit Entertainment has pushed back the release date for The Beaver, starring Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson, from a limited run March 23 to May 6, before opening wide May 20.

According to Variety, Summit had firmed the film's previous spring date in December, after delaying it because of controversy surrounding Mel Gibson.

The film centers on a depressed man (Mel Gibson) who uses a beaver hand puppet as therapy.

The Beaver will world premiere at the South by Southwest fest on March 16.
