It’s handbags at dawn as Sylvester Stallone announced over Twitter that Bruce Willis would be replaced by Harrison Ford in the forthcoming Expendables 3 movie. However, that wasn’t enough, as Stallone went on to elaborate, calling Willis ‘greedy and lazy’ in a second Tweet.

Willis has been in the headlines a lot recently for his unorthodox behaviour in interviews to promote his latest film, Red 2, and this latest outburst suggests that there’s a lot more going on behind the scenes with the popular Die Hard star, who has yet to reply to Stallone’s public outburst.

Stallone’s criticism of Willis has overshadowed the signing of Ford to the Expendables franchise; no doubt he’ll be playing a similar character to Willis, who played a CIA agent who hired Stallone and co. for dangerous missions.

With Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Milla Jovovich and Jackie Chan all rumoured to be making an appearance in the third Expendables film, there’ll be no shortage of big names to attract an audience; as far as Willis’ next move is concerned, we’ll just have to watch this space.

Meantime, here are some other big Hollywood names who had a very public falling out with each other.

Spike Lee/Quentin Tarantino

Spike Lee has long been critical of Quentin Tarantino’s films and when Django Unchained, was announced, he made his displeasure at the film known in a number of tweets. Lee, whose films often examine race issues in America, openly stated in an interview with Vibe magazine that he had no intention of seeing the film, so was basing his opinion on assumption. His belief was that Tarantino’s film would be disrespectful to his ancestors, so he had no desire to see whether his fears were true.

Lee’s words provoked a mixed response, with some fans supportive of him and others thinking he was taking things too seriously. When one told him that it was just a movie and shouldn’t be taken seriously, Lee’s response was that ‘Media is Powerful’.

To be fair, Lee isn’t the only one to have issues with Django Unchained. With its liberal use of the n-word and graphic scenes, opinions are divided as to whether it derides slavery or reminds people of how truly horrific it was. However, plenty have pointed out that Lee is in no position to criticise Tarantino, given the content of his own movies.

Having been at loggerheads with each other for many years, the situation’s unlikely to change any time soon.
