This is such surprising news.
Charlie Sheen being difficult?? Of course not!!!
No, but seriously, looks like Charlie may lose yet another job.
Major League producer James Robinson says that he would love to have Charlie join the sequel to his film, but with Charlie’s latest outbursts and crazy behavior, he’s not sure what the future holds for his film. And without Charlie, the film just won’t happen.
“He’s a talented person. What a waste. What a shame. I don’t know where he’s going right now. I don’t know where he’s going to end up.
He’s very important to the movie. I can’t tell you for sure [if we’ll cancel it], but I can only say that his character, and him playing that character, is very prominent. So that could be a possibility.”
When asked if he would replace Charlie in the role of Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn in the third sequel, Robinson says:
“It never occurred to me to have anyone but him play the character that we wrote for him. He’s not in the film yet because we don’t have a deal with him yet. Our respective representatives have had dialogue but I haven’t talked to him. His part is absolutely in the script and he is very prominently part of the story.”
Having worked with Lindsay Lohan on Georgia Rule, Robinson is no stranger to working with troubled stars. He explains that Charlie needs to shape up before he could even consider putting him in the film. He adds:
“Both sides of the contract always have obligations. If it’s obvious, or we believe he can’t perform, then it would be stupid to put him in the film if he would have difficulty filming that role. There’s been very few times I’ve ever had an actor that couldn’t perform.
He was good to work with. I’m an optimist. He’s being a little difficult right now, and I understand that. I’m sure he’s got his demons torturing him. I sincerely hope there’s a way he can come out of this dark tunnel. But it appears that, so far, he’s either not following whatever treatment should be administered or it’s not working. I frankly don’t know which it is.”
It’s probably a combination of both, honestly. It’s pretty obvious that Charlie isn’t exactly following the rules of treatment and if he is, well then, something else needs to be done because it’s obviously not working.
It’s too bad because we actually would have enjoyed seeing Charlie go back to his old Major League character.
