I’m going to be honest, I really liked Bruce Willis in The Expendables 2 but we’ve heard for years that he can be… hard work and it looks like this proves it.
We all saw the tweet during the week (below) from Sylvester Stallone saying Willis had been replaced (booooooo!) by Harrison Ford (yaaay!) but when he called Willis “greedy and lazy” we knew all was not well.
Now The Hollywood Reporter are saying that a source close to the movie has said that Willis was offered $3 million for four days of work shooting in Bulgaria but he refused, saying he wanted $4m… wait, that’s $1m per day!?
The source claims that when Willis made the demand “Stallone and everybody else involved said no.”
Apparently Stallone then contacted Ford who was totally keen: “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 movie is due for release next summer and will star Stallone, Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke and Wesley Snipes. But not Bruce Willis.
