Charlie Sheen and producer Joe Roth are shopping around a new comedy based on 2003's Anger Management, which starred Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson.

Charlie Sheen will play an unconventional therapist, which was played by Jack Nicholson in the movie, however Charlie Sheen's character will have some differences. Charlie Sheen's character will be an ex-jock who got his master's degree in social work during the offseason. He becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems. But, of course, Charlie's character will have anger issues of his own.

Lionsgate is in the final stages of negotiations to acquire the comedy, which currently does not have a deal with a network to air the show.
