Once upon a time, Charlie Sheen was known as Wild Thing for reasons that had nothing to do with tabloid-fodder divorce hearings, prostitute rings, domestic abuse charges or having his cars repeatedly driven off cliffs. Now it appears he may be eying a return to those halcyon days with a project fans have been dreaming about for almost two decades: 'Major League 3.'

Yes, according to Moviehole, get ready to break out those horn rimmed glasses and fire up the offerings to Jobu, because if 'Major League' writer/director David S. Ward has anything to say about it, the greatest Cleveland Indians squad of the last fifty years will be reuniting on the big screen sooner rather than later.

If, of course, Sheen's personal and professional life can be sorted out.

"I've written what I see as 'Major League 3.' We're putting that together as we speak - in fact, next week I'm off to talk to James Robinson at Morgan Creek about it," Ward told Moviehole. "[Sheen is] excited to do it if and when it happens. But he can't shoot it this year, because he's back doing 'Two and a Half Men,' but we could potentially shoot it next year - in his hiatus from the show."

Yes, according to Moviehole, get ready to break out those horn rimmed glasses and fire up the offerings to Jobu, because if 'Major League' writer/director David S.

"I've written what I see as 'Major League 3.' We're putting that together as we speak -- in fact, next week I'm off to talk to James Robinson at Morgan Creek about it," Ward told Moviehole.

'Major League,' which chronicled the comedic mishaps of the woeful Indians franchise as it attempted to make it into the playoffs for the first time in decades, was a surprise hit back in 1989, pulling in over $50 million at the box office. Its success spawned two sequels, the last of which, 'Major League: Back to the Minors,' was made without many of the franchise's stars, including Sheen. Needless to say, it was a flop, effectively killing the series until now.

Wesley Snipes, Corben Bernsen, Tom Berenger, Rene Russo and Bob Uecker round out the franchise's all-star lineup. Just how many of them will be willing to play ball is yet to be seen, but we figure if Wild Thing can settle his life down enough for a repeat performance, well, anybody can do it.
