Action stars Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis argue a little differently off-screen. Stallone, 67, took to his Twitter on Tuesday, Aug. 6, to reveal that Willis, 58, has been cut out of the Expendables franchise and will be replaced by Harrison Ford. A day later, we come to find out that Willis reportedly had quite daily the asking price. Guess the actor was expendable after all!
A source of The Hollywood Reporter claims that Willis threatened to drop the project unless he was given $1 million per day for a four-day shoot in Bulgaria. He was reportedly offered $3 million.
Prior to this report, Stallone posted two all-caps tweets that read:

GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE— Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) August 6, 2013
Expendables 3 is expected to begin production this month, and will reportedly also star Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Milla Jovovich and possibly Mel Gibson. The movie will not hit theaters until 2014.
