Chuck Lorre will relaunch Two And a Half Men without Charlie Sheen!
‘Two And a Half Men’ creator Chuck Lorre is reportedly planning to bring the series back without Charlie Sheen.
The show was cancelled in February after Sheen was fired when he was hospitalised following yet another drink and drugs binge session with his two porn star ‘Goddesses.’
Despite rumours that the troubled actor has been in talks to return to the show, Lorre is now said to planning a new direction for the show, without its original star.
The Hollywood Reporter states that the focus of the show will be shifted from Sheen’s character Charlie and move to his brother Alan, played by Jon Cryer, and a new yet-to-be cast character.
Sources told the website that many well-known actors are being considered for the new role, although the studio hasn’t yet confirmed whether the show is returning for a ninth series.
Although 45-year-old Charlie is currently suing Chuck and Warner Bros. for $100 million, he recently expressed his desire to return to the sitcom and hinted that he would have amended his past behaviour if he had known it would lead to him losing his job. He said: “There’s been discussions, but I was asked not to divulge anything.
“Had they told me at the end of season eight that that behaviour wasn’t going to be cool, I would have adjusted it.”
