A source with knowledge of the situation says the fallout was over a specific money demand. Willis was offered $3 million for four days of consecutive work on location in Bulgaria for the film. "He said he'd drop out unless he got $4 million," this source close to the production says. "A million dollars a day. Stallone and everybody else involved said no."
Oh well... he can continue to make his stupid Die Hard sequels and he is locked in for GI Joe 3. I remember that episode of "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis" where Zach asked Bruce, "Did you know that some actors turn down roles?" Good for him! lol
So, way back when, I said and that seems explicitly the strategy they used in picking him. And how Paul picked him too, really. I had it figured out at the final four, because Mark, Nicole and Paul had eliminated themselves by that point.
