What a scary time.

Well, at least Charlie Sheen is NOT the focus of this drama…for once!
Joe Roth, the producer behind movie-turned-sitcom Anger Management, is being sued by producer Jason Shuman for $50 million (!!!), because Shuman claims it was HIS idea to transfer the mediocre film over to boob-tube territory.
Anger Management stars the notorious Charlie Sheen - the embodiment of someone who needs therapeutic assistance with their anger - and has rated surprisingly high among test audiences, so it will LIKELY make lots o’ cash.
Roth is heading the show AND was responsible for bringing Charlie in on the project - but Mr. Shu (HAH) alleges that he and Roth had made a deal so that Shu would get a major bite of the profits - but that Roth is now reneging on his promise…
Aw, you poor producers! It’s a tough life, huh??
