Charlie Sheen confirmed for Major League 3?

February 23rd, 2011

Charlie Sheen is set to star in a third 'Major League' movie.

The troubled actor - who is currently receiving treatment at home for a drug addiction problem which led to a hiatus of his TV show 'Two and a Half Men' - has been asked to bring back 'Wild Thing' Rick Vaughn for a third movie in the sport comedy series.

Director David S. Ward has confirmed a story is in place for the comedy movie, which would be a follow-up to 1994's 'Major League II'.

He said: "It's 20 years later and Charlie's character has been out of baseball since he gave up the walk-off homerun in the seventh game of the World Series.

"But the team wants him back to mentor this young fireballing relief pitcher."

David confirms the 45-year-old star is "interested" in the role and production could get underway soon.

He added to The Hollywood Reporter: "Charlie is interested in doing it, we're taking the first steps on it.

"Now it's just a matter of putting the movie together in the timeframe we have. Charlie was a window coming up."

Charlie recently confessed he saw the 1998 movie 'Major League: Back to the Minors' as an "abortion" and did not consider it as part of the series.
