(Newser) – Bruce Willis, uber diva? Apparently, if sources and one Sylvester Stallone are to be believed. Willis has been cut from Expendables 3, and the buzz is that it's because he was a PITA to work with. The first dig on the actor comes by way of the Hollywood Reporter, who spoke with a source who says Willis insisted on a $4 million payday for shooting in Bulgaria for four days; he had been offered $3 million. "A million dollars a day. Stallone and everybody else involved said no," says the source. (The film's budget, by the way, is $90 million.)

In 72 hours Willis had been cut and Harrison Ford had stepped in, joining Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, and Wesley Snipes. The Reporter notes that it was Stallone who offered Ford the gig, and it's Stallone who has gone on record to blast Willis' behavior. On Tuesday he tweeted, "WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!" Then came the real dig, "GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE."

I was in the theater industry for 45 years. Hollywood is a joke. FAKE! Its only a movie! Stop making them all rich and famous. They are the monsters that you created. I dont go to movies, unless they are computer animated. That takes talent! Despicable Me II, UP, Monster University, etc. I watch stuff at home. Older stuff that was made when people cared about quality films instead of the almighty $$$$$$$. Bruce knows his days are numbered, and Hollywood will soon be owned by China like everything else. China has already bought AMC, American Multi Cineama, the largest Movie Company in America. Even though most movies are edited in China, They do BIG TIME BUSINESS! Some do better overseas, than in the USA. Hollywood Wins!

I should say that 3 million for 4 days work is enough to keep your airplane fueled all year.....
