There has been a little trouble in paradise for Sylvester Stallone and his "Expendables 3" casting. Reportedly, Bruce Willis was demanding $4 million for 4 days of shooting in Bulgaria or he said he'd walk. A million a day, not a bad deal, right? When the actor was only offered $3 million, as promised, he walked.
Wasting no time, Stallone turned to twitter to reveal that Harrison Ford would be replacing him. Stallone's tweet stated, "WILLIS OUT...HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!"
A few minutes after his first tweet, Stallone sent out the following cryptic message, which may or may not pertain to Willis. "GREEDY AND LAZY...A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE".
A fun turn of events indeed. Adding Han Solo to any picture is just fine by me. Sure, Ford is getting up there in age, but the nostalgia alone of having him in the picture, is worth its weight in gold. I am sad to see Willis go though, as I am a big fan of him as an actor. It's never fun hearing about actors turning down roles due to money, hopefully there is more to the story so we can keep our good image of Willis intact.
