Charlie Sheen to star in Crackle's original film Mad Families
Charlie Sheen has found a new family.
The Two and a Half Men star is set to headline and executive produce Mad Families, an original film from Crackle. Fred Wolf, who co-wrote the screenplay with David Spade, will direct the project. The duo was behind the network’s Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser.
The film, set on the Fourth of July holiday weekend, will follow three families from different backgrounds as they face off in a series of competitions to decide who gets to stay in the camping space that they’re sharing. Sheen will star in the multi-generational comedy as Charlie Jones, a lovable man-child.
Joining Sheen in Mad Families, which began production last week in Los Angeles, are Leah Remini (King of Queens), Naya Rivera (Glee), Clint Howard (The Waterboy), Charlotte McKinney (Joe Dirt 2), and Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite).
