The Lionsgate TV show will be based on the 2003 Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler “Anger Management” and be starring none other than Charle Sheen.
It’s official, Charlie Sheen is set to return to television, and beyond that, to have a “significant ownership stake” in the project.
“I chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept,” Sheen said in the press release. “It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth.”
Roth and Sheen have worked together on five other movies, including Major League, Young Guns and Three Musketeers.
“Who better than Charlie Sheen to tackle Anger Management,” Roth said. “With Charlie’s incredible talent and comedic gifts, he remains the leading man of TV sitcoms. I’m excited to collaborate with him once again.”
In the meantime, less than a month after her last 45-day stint in rehab, Sheen’s ex-wife—Brooke Mueller is checking back in, this time in México, as her extreme form of rehab is not available, or legal in the U.S.
Mueller will spend seven days in sunny Cancún while undergoing a treatment of Ibogaine, a hallucinogenic drug that has been known to help break addictions to alcohol, cocaine and heroin.
