Sheen Close to Settlement in 'Two and a Half Men' Legal Dispute?

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Another sign that Charlie Sheen is making peace with his former colleagues with Two and a Half Men: he's closing in on a settlement with producer Warner Bros. and series creator Chuck Lorre that would resolve their legal dispute, according to The Los Angeles Times.  He reportedly will receive about $25 million.

After he was fired from Two and a Half Men in March, Sheen filed a $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Lorre for wrongful termination.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. will fork over all of the money that Sheen will receive under the settlement.

Despite the $25 million figure floated by The Los Angeles Times, reports that Sheen will receive tens of millions more in syndication profits over the next decade, giving him a total sum of $100 million.

Sheen was making $1.2 million per episode at the time of his firing.  The Los Angeles Times notes that Sheen had been under contract through the current season.

In TV appearances on The Tonight Show last week and the Emmy Awards on Sunday, a seemingly apologetic Sheen wished the Two and a Half Men cast and crew all the best going forward.
