GRUMPY OLD MEN: Stallone Says Willis is ‘Greedy & Lazy’, Replaces Bruce with Harrison Ford for Expendables 3

For most people, the prospect of earning a staggering $3million for just four days work would sound like a pretty sweet deal.

But not Bruce Willis, who was reportedly ditched from upcoming movie The Expendables 3 – penned by Sylvester Stallone – after demanding an astronomical $4million fee.

Despite already commanding a rather generous pay packet for the role, which required four days of consecutive work on location in Bulgaria, the 58-year-old actor is said to have wanted an eye-popping million dollars a day.

A source told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘He said he’d drop out unless he got $4million. A million dollars a day. Stallone and everybody else involved said no.’

And the demands didn’t appear to have gone down too well with Stallone, who replaced Willis on the project with fellow A-list actor Harrison Ford within just 72 hours.

The source added: ‘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.’
