Well, this ought to set therapy back 100 years.

Charlie Sheen is in talks to star in a sitcom based on the 2003 Jack Nicholson-Adam Sandler comedy Anger Management, as, no, not the guy who too easily flies off the handle and needs help getting a grip...

Instead, studio honcho turned producer Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland, the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, etc.) wants the unpredictable star to play a character based on the Nicholson role of kooky counselor who's a lot better at enraging his patients than he is at calming them down, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Sheen's version would be an ex-athlete (hey, Wild Thing!) who has to deal with his own rage issues while helping folks who've landed in court-ordered anger management.

Per the trade, Roth is in talks with Lionsgate to finance and distribute the sitcom in hopes of having a pilot ready to go for network consideration in fall 2012 (they can probably count TBS out ). He's also still hunting for a showrunner to tie this zany idea together.

Roth has worked with Sheen on five films, including Major League, Young Guns, and The Three Musketeers.

And he hasn't been scared off yet, so this just might work!

Sheen's rep had no new comment on the purported project, though last week he told E! News, "Receiving several opportunities but can't comment on anything at this time." Roth did not immediately return requests for comment.
