Will Mel Gibson Show Up on the Croisette to Support The Beaver?

Although he's avoided public appearances and kept press engagements to a minimum in the lead up to the premiere of The Beaver, Mel Gibson might yet show up at the Cannes Film Festival. According to a rep for The Beaver's French distributor, Gibson "is coming to Cannes," though his camp says it's still up in the air. Gauging public support, perhaps? Will the French lead by example and embrace the embattled filmmaker with open arms? [THR]
