London: "Two And a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre is reportedly planning to re-launch the sitcom without its original star Charlie Sheen, who was fired from the show earlier this year.

Sheen was dismissed from the show after being hospitalised following a 36-hour drink and drugs session with a bevy of porn stars.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, instead of focusing on Sheen`s character, the new version of the Warner Bros hit would be about his brother Alan, played by Jon Cryer, and a new character, which has not been finalised yet.

Femalefirst.co.uk reports that many well-known actors are being considered for the new role, although the studio hasn`t yet confirmed whether the show is returning for a ninth series.

Last month 45-year-old Sheen filed a $100 million lawsuit against Warner Brothers and producer Chuck Lorre.
