Opinion: Bruce Willis 'greedy and lazy' after 'Expendables' exit? Not so much, Sylvester Stallone

“GREEDY AND LAZY . . . A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”

That’s what Sylvester Stallone tweeted on Tuesday, just after he announced that Harrison Ford was joining his Expendables team for their next adventure, filling the action-icon void left by his onetime Planet Hollywood pal, Bruce Willis. It was impossible not to assume that Stallone was aiming his broadside at Willis, especially when The Hollywood Reporter cited “sources with knowledge of the situation” that claimed that Willis was replaced after he’d demanded $4 million for just four days of filming in Bulgaria.

Sylvester Stallone asks: What about Mel Gibson directing 'Expendables 3'?

Late-blooming fan-fiction auteur Sylvester Stallone, on the verge of finishing his latest mash-up crossovers Tango & Terminator and Rocky vs. Raging Bull, is finally getting back to his crossover mega-franchise The Expendables (which is itself sort of the Crisis on Infinite Earths of old things). Stallone has spent the last month free-associating about The Expendables 3 on his Twitter account, promising mountains of surprises and more humor, saying in no uncertain terms that Steven Seagal will not be involved but that Jackie Chan has a spot saved on the roster, and also putting out a casual casting call for a “tech wizard,” a “super brains,” and “a young woman who is not a sex symbol but funny, tough, REAL.” READ FULL STORY

The movie action hero after Sandy Hook: Is it time for a 'Bullet To The Head'?

Remember the good old days when people could enjoy watching an action hero who shoots a lot of people without feeling like they were contributing to the ruin of society? Sylvester Stallone sure hopes so. The well-preserved Rocky and Rambo star, now 66, is back in theaters this week with Bullet To The Head, his first solo vehicle since The Expendables franchise (made in collaboration with his grumpy frat pack bash brothers) Viagra’d his brand of brawn. Stallone’s latest feature, directed by the venerable action maestro Walter Hill (The Warriors; 48 Hours), seems poured from the mold that he helped forge back in the day with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. In fact, the one-time Planet Hollywood power trio is trying to muster a resurgence this year that resembles their shoot ‘em up heyday, albeit with more gray hairs (or no hair) and additional wrinkles (or conspicuously fewer). Bullet To The Head follows Schwarzenegger’s post-Governator comeback bid, The Last Stand, and ahead of A Good Day To Die Hard, Willis’ fifth stint as insurance nightmare John “I can’t believe this is happening to me AGAIN!” McLane. (The Joseph Gordon-Levitt lookalike also has the sequel to RED – about a secret society of retired CIA agents – later this year.)
