Sylvester Stallone reportedly replaced Bruce Willis from Expendables 3 because the actor demanded one million per day.
Stallone publicly slammed Willis for being “greedy” while
announcing that Harrison Ford was replacing him. He took to
Twitter to express his anger,tweeting “GREEDY AND LAZY… A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”
Willis,58,was reportedly offered USD 3 million for four days of work shooting in Bulgaria but said he would drop out if he didn’t get USD 4 million,according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“He said he’d drop out unless he got USD 4 million. A million dollars a day. Stallone and everybody else involved said no,” a source close to the production said.
“I think (Willis) was pretty surprised he was replaced in 72 hours by Harrison Ford – a better actor,a much nicer person and a more interesting direction for the film.”
The next installment of The Expendables is set for release next August by Millenium Films.
The action movie has a star-studded cast of Arnold Schwarzenegger,Jason Statham,Mickey Rourke,Wesley Snipes and Jackie Chan.
