HOLLYWOOD (from TMZ) -- Charlie Sheen wants another home run at the box office. The actor wants to play Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn in another "Major League" sequel, TMZ reports.

Sheen's idea isn't just a pipe dream. Producers have reportedly been working on a script for a fourth "Major League" film for more than a year.

Sources close to the production told the website that an outline for the film was created in 2010 and most of the original cast has already been contacted about roles - except for Corbin Bernson, who played Roger Dorn in the first three films.

Bernson contacted Morgan Creek productions when he heard the film was being made, according to the report, but was told there are currently no plans to include him.

His publicist told TMZ, "Corbin would love to do another 'Major League' but it doesn't look like he's been written into the movie at this point. We're hopeful he gets written in by the time it's finalized though."

Sheen told the website he was upset about the snub, adding, "I would love it for him to be in ... but I ain't the writer or director ... I'm a hired gun ... I'll do my best."

The "Two and a Half Men" star, who entered rehab last month following reported partying and a trip to the hospital for abdominal pain, reportedly got into the "Major League" spirit by hosting a screening of the original film for some Major League Baseball players.

The screening, which took place Friday, included guests such as Brian Wilson, Kenny Lofton, Todd Zeile, Eddie Murray, and Lenny Dykstra. Sheen even brought in writer and director David S. Ward to give an introduction in the actor's private theater.

During the party, TMZ reports, Sheen let some of the players try on Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series ring, which he purchased at an auction more than a decade ago.
