Charlie Sheen talks about hitting up another 'Major League'

major-leagueImage Credit: Everett CollectionCharlie Sheen hasn’t headlined a major Hollywood hit since Scary Movie 3 in 2003, but even with his personal life under the microscope and his TV career on hold, he’s talking about resurrecting one of his most memorable characters: The Wild Thing. Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn was the ex-con who became a flame-throwing right-hander for the fictional version of Cleveland Indians in the 1989 movie, Major League, and production company Morgan Creek tells EW that they currently have a script for another sequel from David Ward, who wrote the screenplay for the original. This time around, the Indians convince Vaughn, Willie Hayes (Wesley Snipes), and Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert) to re-join the team as bench players to help salvage their season, but complications ensue when Vaughn’s long-estranged son, born out of wedlock, joins the team from the minors. Corbin Bernsen, who played arrogant third baseman Roger Dorn, is reportedly not in the mix this time.

Morgan Creek says it’s still “just a script,” but Sheen told TMZ that he’s in negotiations to reprise his character, though “they don’t seem to think that I’m as valuable as I do.” To be fair, the free-agent market for 45-year-old hurlers with only one devastating pitch can be equally cruel, unless Wild Thing has finally adopted the age-old habits of doctoring the ball. But there’s no real rush to get this team on the field: Snipes, you might recall, is currently fielding movie offers from his jail cell in Pennsylvania, where he’s serving time for income tax evasion.

Are you interested in another season with Major League‘s graying characters? And is it possible that Vaughn’s “long-estranged son, born out of wedlock” is the fruit of his liaison with Dorn’s wife? I’m just saying.

  • Mr. PeterBilta

    If its not filmed here in tha Miltown again its a travesty and sham and a mockery. Its a travishamockery!!!

  • Jeff

    What about Omar Epps?!?! Forget Passenger 57.

    • Mr. Holloway

      I think Omar Epps lapsed into a coma about two or three years ago on “House.” (At least that’s how he’s been playing Foreman.)

  • Mr. Holloway

    This just sounds like a truly awful idea.

    Still, 45-year-old Wild Thing, Cerrano and Willie Mayes Hayes would almost certainly be more entertaining to watch than the real Cleveland Indians were last year.

    • LOL

      Train wreck.

    • Mr. Holloway

      Willy Mays* Hayes

  • RyanK

    I have to admit to being curious to see how the Wild Thing handles old age. Now they just need to keep Sheen and Snipes out of prison for long enough to film it.

  • Tyler

    Nope. I’ll pass.

  • Watson

    This ship sailed years ago. Heck, even Major League 2 was a bomb.

  • John

    Hey, a 4th couldn’t be any worse than the third one, with it’s CGI baseballs and green screen special effects, could it?

  • Jay

    As much as I would love to see Sheen on the big screen again (and no, his cameo in the Wall Street sequel doesn’t count), but they are all too old to play baseball!! C’mon now, it would just be silly

  • karin

    this guy can’t act…
    please shut him down..

  • Tim

    Very original.

  • Stephanie T.

    The third was ok, but the second was retarded. Honestly, they should have never made sequels but the first had the best script.

    • Mr. Holloway

      I actually don’t hate “Major League 2.” Yes, it was very lazy, but I actually thought David Keith (not to be confused with Keith David) was a sneakily great sports movie villain.

  • Chris

    I can understand Sheen and Snipes (and ever Berenger), but I would have to think this movie would do nothing to benefit Dennis Haysbert’s career. I loved the original, so I would be disappointed if they brought ML back and it sucked.

  • John Berggren

    I can’t see a need to go back to this particular well.

  • Sonny

    Never heard of ‘em.

  • A J

    WILD THING! YOU MAKE EVERYTHING….DISGUSTING!!!

    Love the first 2 Major Leagues
