'Lone Star' and 'The Beaver:' Kyle Killen's Wild Ride

Hosted by

Kyle Killen created the Fox drama, Lone Star, which was recently canceled after just two airings.  While that television dream didn't exactly work out as planned, his film career is hanging in limbo. He wrote the much lauded screenplay for the movie The Beaver, directed by Jodie Foster and starring Foster alongside Mel Gibson, who plays a troubled man communicating with the world through a hand puppet.  At one point it was due out this year but according to Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the film, there's still no release date for the The Beaver.  Killen talks about how this screenplay turned his life around, and how Gibson's casting may have affected the possibility of the film's release.
