"A source with knowledge of the situation says the fallout was over a specific money demand. 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."
Stallone then quickly reached out to Ford, who was game to join the Expendables cast.
The insider adds, "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."
Willis' reps at CAA declined to comment."
Well you can't really call that anything but greedy, I would have thought that $3,000,000 to work for four days among friends was generous and apparently Stallone felt the same way. Feel free to add your own "I guess he was expendable" jokes here.
It's also worth noting that Harrison Ford is mentioned as a direct replacement for Bruce Willis which to me suggests that he won't be playing the President like some of us had hoped but will be fulfilling whatever role Willis had. Maybe acting as his higher up?
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been pumping iron lately and looks to be in great shape.
Compare this picture from May...
"This marks her second role in as many weeks having also committed to a part in “The Expendables 3.” Given that both films are heavy on action, the films will work to Rousey’s advantage given her skill set as a fighter similar to how Gina Carano made her transition from mixed martial arts fighting to acting.
The idea is that Rousey would shoot both films back to back in order to finish in time to meet the time needed to focus on training for her next fight. She has a championship rematch on Dec. 28 with Mischa Tate and needs 45 days where she is only training for the fight."
"Happy to have @VICIOUSortiz join XCM for mgmt and look forward to working on Expendables 3!"
