London: Mel Gibson, whose career took a backseat after being accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, is now planning to re-launch his Hollywood career.

The troubled film star is planning to revamp his career by playing a psychotic executive on screen.

His bizarre film ‘The Beaver’, co-starring and directed by Jodie Foster, was put on ice after he was accused of attacking ex Grigorieva and mum of his daughter Lucia, last year.

It will now debut at a film festival in Austin, Texas, next week after Gibson, 55, was put on probation for three years by an LA court.

Gibson, who shocked Hollywood last year with racist and sexist rants, has to attend domestic violence counselling.

“He is anxious to put all this behind him and focus on his career,” a daily quoted a source close to him as saying.
