Sylvester Stallone made Bruce Willis expendable.

With a vengeance, Stallone gleefully announced yesterday that Willis had been booted from “The Expendables” summer franchise, calling him a greedy, lazy jerk.

Click here for more on the story from The New York Post.

Stallone, who co-wrote both previous “Expendables” movies and directed the first, revealed that Harrison Ford would be joining the cast in place of Willis.

The “Rocky” actor tweeted: “WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!”

Not satisfied with simply showing Willis the door, Stallone added this parting Twitter shot: “GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE."

Willis had played Mr. Church, a CIA agent, in the first two incarnations of “The Expendables.” A rep for the “Die Hard” actor could not be immediately reached for comment this morning.


I'm intrigued with the Harrison Ford thing.

Kevin Smith confers. Personally, Ford is a better choice than Willis after Die Hard 5.

According to The Hollywood Reporter,

    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

Non-Spoiler Portion: Fun movie. Probably more for the older male set (late 30’s to mid to late 40’s) than the younger crowd (men younger than late 30’s or over 50 and all women)
