Sylvester Stallone is talking mad action hero shit about his former Expendables castmate Bruce Willis. A couple of days ago it came out that Willis wouldn’t appear in Expendables 3 and he would be replaced by the walking corpse of what was Harrison Ford. There was speculation as to why Willis would quit as the franchise does pretty decent business. Apparently, it’s because Stallone, (who co-writes and produces the series), thinks Willis isn’t worth the money. Sly tweeted:
“WILLIS OUT… HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!! GREEDY AND LAZY …… A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”
And in all caps too, so you know it’s serious! We can infer that the greedy part is that Willis wanted more money and Stallone thought he didn’t deserve it. Now, I don’t know what went on in the sleazy backrooms of Hollywood that led to this decision, but I do know one thing: Stallone is no one to give career advice to Bruce Willis. Let’s face it, after the 80′s and before the first Expendables…Stallone was more MIA than those old soldiers John Rambo rescued in Rambo: First Blood 2. Willis has worked nonstop since his days flirting with Cybill Shepherd back when she was hot on Moonlighting. But Stallone certainly has things Willis doesn’t have, namely an Oscar, an ex-porn career, and his hair. So, there’s that.
‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ doesn’t have a very good director, or writer, or premise (John McClane goes to Russia to save his son), so it will probably be terrible, but the trailer is ok, and Bruce Willis is always good, and it at least it has Julia Snigir unzipping her jacket on a motorcycle. It will be interesting to see what her name looks like on the movie poster. Spacing is very important with this one. The last thing you want is for JULIA SNIGIR to look like JULIAS NIGIR.
I take the fact that this opens with a finger-gun/sniper scene taken from ‘The Losers’ when Chris Evans did the exact same thing as a terrific sign! Now that scene has the advantage of being completely unintelligible.
Ashton Kutcher has been criticized lately because he’s essentially done nothing to show any kind of support for Demi Moore since she was hospitalized last week, but keep in mind that Ashton Kutcher is a jackass. Seems unrealistic to think that was just gonna magically stop now.
Thankfully, E! says he’s finally found time in his busy schedule to swing by.
On Wednesday, Bruce Willis was spotted paying a visit to (Demi). Later in the day … Ashton Kutcher was seen pulling into the actress’ driveway in a blacked-out Lexus.
That’s not a bad impulse actually. Just do that Ashton. Just follow Bruce Willis around and do whatever he does, since he seems to know what he’s doing, and you’re practically retarded.
It’s been said that you could pull almost any still from a Wes Anderson movie and use it as a poster, because every image in every shot will be symmetrical and beautifully framed. And that’s clearly true for his next movie too, which, if he were being honest, he’d call, ‘An Anamorphic Wide-Angle Lens Shooting To-Camera Medium-Shots, part 6.’
The CEO of Fox announced today that ‘Die Hard 5′ will begin filming in January, with a terrible director (‘The Omen’, ‘Max Payne’) and a terrible writer (‘Swordfish’, “X-Men-Wolverine’), and will be released on Valentines Day in 2013. Can they fuck this up any more? Yes, actually, because they’re calling it ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’, and it’s about John McClane going to Russia to get his son out of jail.
Now, there was once a time when Justin Timberlake was scheduled to play his son in ‘Die Hard 4′, so at least we’ll be spared that, but re-watch the trailer for ‘the Raid’. That’s what ‘Die Hard’ is supposed to look like. Look movie studios, I’m more than happy to give you my 10 dollars, but you fuckers have to at least meet me halfway on this.
