Yesterday, the world was rocked by a RED HOT FEUD taking place between Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone on Twitter. What was the feud (one-way tweets) about? The world could only wonder and wait. And today, the wait is over. Take it, The Hollywood Reporter!
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.
WHAT?! Expendables 3 only offered to give Bruce Willis, star of literally multiple episodes of Friends, slightly less than a million dollars a day to run around and play pretend in Bulgaria while so many people are struggling to pay for food to feed both their children and themselves every day, so often they have to go without and holy shit that is so much money?! Bullshit, man. First Hollywood refuses to let Leonardo DiCaprio have the daring role of a waterman, and now this? I kind of get the feeling that no one over there knows what they’re doing anymore. But at least we found out who the TRUE The Expendables was after all. (It kind of reminds me a lot of a t-shirt I used to wear as a kid.) Another classic #TwitterFeud mystery solved. I wonder what tomorrow’s will be?
