LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Could “Two and a Half Men: The Movie” be on the horizon?

A new deal between Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. Television makes it possible – if not exactly likely.

Two and a Half Men” creator Lorre has inked a new four-year deal with Warner Bros. TV that will see him moving into features.

Though the deal will still center around television, it will make it possible for him to write, develop and/or direct features for Warner Bros.

“After writing and producing sitcoms for 20 years, it’ll be a welcome relief to take all the violence, insanity and human suffering from behind the cameras and put it out front,” Lorre cracked in a release. “And finally, the feature component of this new deal allows me to fulfill a lifelong ambition – to have a project in ‘turnaround.’”

The deal also expands Lorre’s television-development territory into dramas and long-form projects.

Under the new agreement, Lorre will continue to executive-produce “Two and a Half Men,” “Mike & Molly” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

Lorre has been with Warner Bros. Television since 2000.
