As we recently reported, Charlie Sheen has been working on a new television series, and we have learned that the new show will be based on the 2003 movie Anger Management which originally starred Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson.
We're told that Sheen will be playing the Jack Nicholson character. Charlie's character will be an ex-jock who got his master's degree in social work during the offseason. He becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems. But, of course, Charlie's character will have anger issues of his own.
The deal with Lionsgate is reportedly still not done, but the show is in the final stages of negotiations. There is not a deal with any network to air the show, yet.
We'll keep you updated on Charlie Sheen, as well as this soon-to-be-trainwreck.
