Chuck Lorre Hatches ‘Two and a Half Men’ Reboot Without Charlie Sheen
With time running out before the CBS upfront presentation in May, the plan to relaunch “Two and a Half Men” without Charlie Sheen is beginning to take shape.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that series co-creator Chuck Lorre has hatched an idea to reboot the Warner Bros.-produced sitcom with a new creative direction that doesn’t involve Sheen, who was fired from the series in March.
Lorre is said to have presented close associates and “Men” co-star Jon Cryer with the plan, and the studio and network are aware of his intentions. According to an insider, Lorre has told Cryer this reboot would involve a significant role for him and the introduction of a new, yet-to-be-cast character.
