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.

Personally, Ford is a better choice than Willis after Die Hard 5. The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.

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." (edited by XPacArmy on 8.8.13 1259)

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

MGM/UA has always been fairly adamant about keeping costs down on Bond films if possible, especially since they're SFX heavy (and thereby pretty damned expensive).
