Bruce Willis Out, Harrison Ford In for EXPENDABLES 3

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.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
