Sheen had wanted $10M for the project. Meanwhile, another "goddess" has been added to Sheen's warlock harum. The 26-year-old Megan Levant apparently has been dating the actor "for several months," and seems a perfect fit as it's reported she "loves porn and is a regular visitor to the Playboy mansion."
