Sylvester Stallone rips Bruce Willis on Twitter over 'Expendables 3'
There's no love lost between Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone after Rocky kidney punched John McClane on Twitter over the future of Expendables 3. We would say that's a real '80s-style rivalry but, well, Twitter.
"WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!" Stallone all-capped on Tuesday. Don't go thinking Bruce left quietly either, because then Sly wrote, "GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE"

Stallone's people confirmed to the Huffington Post that last part indeed was about Willis, but didn't supply any more information (The Hollywood Reporter says it’s because Willis wanted $4 million for three days’ work instead of the $3 million the movie offered). Obviously there's some problem with money, what with Bruce riding G.I. Joe: Retaliation all the way to $370 million at the box office, but there's likely no room in the budget to bring him back.
The ode to the action movies of yesteryear also includes Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Milla Jovovich. Mel Gibson may show up, too. And Stallone is calling Willis out for career failure, huh? Okay.
