The harsh words came soon after Stallone’s Twitter announcement that Harrison Ford would replace the “Die Hard” star in “The Expendables 3″ — something Stallone claims he’d been wanting to happen for years.
Stallone has starred as Barney Ross in all “Expendables” films and directed the first installment. Willis played Mr. Church in the films. It’s unclear at this time whether Ford will portray this character or if he will have a new role.
*** This is not the first time someone has trashed Mr. Willis and not the first time I've heard the words greedy and lazy to describe him. Kevin Smith also had a horrible working experience with him as have others. Going all the way back to Brian De Palma's 1990 blunder "The Bonfire of the Vanities". Apparently sudden stardom after "Die Hard" turned him into a real prick. At the same time others have praised him but his reputation is further damaged.****'
There was however one really good thing that came out of Bonfire and that is Brian De Palma's wonderful uncut 5 minute opening as only the great Mr. De Palma can.
