Charlie Sheen is saying that despite his recent entry into rehab, he’s ready and willing to film another ‘Major League’ sequel, www.tmz.com is reporting. The actor, who portrayed Rick ‘Wild thing’ Vaughn in the original 1989 ‘Major League,’ and its 1994 follow-up, is hoping Warner Bros., the studio that released the series, will green-light a script for another film.
Sheen made the announcement on ‘TMZ Live,’ where he also said he’s doing everything he can to have ‘Major League 3′ released into theaters. While he also acknowledged that the 1998 movie ‘Major League: Back to the Minors,’ which featured a predominately new cast, is considered to be the third film in the series, he considers it to be an “abortion.” He also said he doesn’t believe it should be included with the first two films in the franchise.
The announcement comes just a week after Sheen told executives of his hit CBS sitcom ‘Two and a Half Men’ that he wants to be taken off “forced hiatus.” The executives wanted him to undergo rehab treatments to get sober, but he said in a radio interview with ‘The Dan Patrick Show’ that he’s ready to return to the series. Sheen thinks the executives weren’t ready for him to get well so quickly, but he added that “I heal really quickly.”
