Biz Break: Sly Stallone Calls Bruce Willis "Greedy and Lazy," and Somewhere in the World, Kevin Smith Feels Vindicated

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | August 7, 2013 | Comments ()


The Muppets Most Wanted is being released on March 21, 2014, so we now have the first trailer. I think Tina Fey might have a mustache at one point in the trailer and Animal has learned the word sequel. Sequel. SEQUEL!

Sylvester Stallone is super pissed at Bruce Willis. Stallone accuses Willis of being “GREEDY AND LAZY ….. A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.” on his official Twitter account. It seems that the two gentlemen were unable to enter into an agreement concerning the return of Willis’ character for the third installment of The Expendables, resulting in hurt feelings and an all-caps super sweet BURN. So hardcore, bro.


Harrison Ford will now be joining Stallone’s mercenary crew flick in a new role that was definitely not originally done by Willis, you guys. I’m fairly certain that Carl Weathers is anxiously waiting by his phone, wondering why he won’t be joining Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage, and Wesley Snipes in Shooty Old Men The Expendables 3.

Paul Ruebens has been working with Paul Rust (“The Pee Wee Herman Show On Broadway”) on a script for the new Pee Wee Herman movie. Judd Apatow is producing the movie and there is allegedly a director on board as well. No one involved is ready to reveal the director’s identity yet. Could it be…LARGE MARGE?? BUT SHE’S DEAD!


Bryan Singer has shared that Evan Peterson’s Quicksilver will be filmed at 3600 frames per second in X-Men Days of Future Past. As long as Quicksilver doesn’t look like a speedy vampire pulling a Benny Hill sequence up a mountain, I’m optimistic that this will result in an awesome display of the character’s ability to be fast. Like your mom.

Since The Conjuring has made over $100 million at the domestic box office, there is OF COURSE a sequel in the works. The rumor, according to Ain’t It Cool News, is that producers will dig into the case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren for more inspiration and possible box office gold. Personally, I didn’t think The Conjuring was scary, but it was an interesting watch. Okay, maybe I jumped at one point that involved SPOILER jumping from SPOILER and then SPOILER the SPOILER, because that was creepy.

Either way, there seems to be a case of possessed sisters from Enfield, England that caught the attention of the Warrens in the 70s. One of the sisters allegedly vanished into thin air in front of the Warrens and then reappeared several feet away, contorted inside a fuse box. Meh.

You know what is scary? The teaser for “American Horror Story: Coven”. Why? There is no explanation for why those women are stuck to the room like Wacky Wall Walkers.

    Evan Peters - not Evan Peterson.

    Wow I came by this post by accident I typed in is bruce willis a dick. And came upon a man named kevin smith discussing how bruce was a real jerk on a movie set and how he treated people and not wanting to stand on his mark. and likes to punch people so it hurts to see if they are man enough. and about soldiers in Iraq wanting their picture taken with him and he wouldn't give them the time of day. And wow now I read this. Jee the guy sounds horrible to say the least. Don't know how Stallone put up with him in the first two films. Stallone I've heard is pretty easy going and playful with his team mates , and giving. So Willis really must have went over the top and took a man like stallone to call him on it. Good for Stallone , he doesn't need that crap he has enough on his plate to deliver a great movie. and by the sounds of things Bruce would only sabotage it. Good riddens I say.

    I'm trying to think of a good witch movie and I'm not sure there is one. I don't think I've ever read a story about witches either. Practical Magic was a bit of a dark shampoo commercial with some Goran Visjinic ( SP?) and Aiden Quinn eye candy. Entertaining, but not a lot of substance. I'm just drawing a blank, but I can't remember any stories that had witches as a central theme rather than as smaller parts. Anyone have a witch movie to recommend?
    I'm looking forward to AHS 3, The Coven.

  • Robert

    The Craft, Black Sunday, Paranorman, Inferno, Hocus Pocus, Season of the Witch, The Woods, Dreams in the Witch House, Hausu (debatable, it's a witch or it's a haunting), Kiki's Delivery Service, The Witches of Eastwick, Mirrormask, War Witch, The Witches, and your pick of the Harry Potter films. There are more. I'm just drawing a blank.

    The best witch novel is The Conjure Wife by Fritz Lieber, which established one of the the longest lasting and most devastating horror cliches. The film adaptation (Burn, Witch, Burn) is an abomination that must always be discussed in the context of the book to apologize for any harm the film has done to the book's reputation.

  • Siege

    The Witches with Anjelica Huston, which is based on a Roald Dahl book. Or, if you like cheese, there's always The Craft.

  • Semilitterate

    The Witches of Eastwick

  • Siege

    I know I'm in the minority here, but the news that Nicolas Cage is going to be joining the Expendables made my day month year.

  • SmokinLiketheJoker

    I know right. Love him or hate him, he's always good for a laugh.

  • robbermaiden

    WACKY WALL WALKERS! i loved those things.

    "As long as Quicksilver doesn’t look like a speedy vampire pulling a
    Benny Hill sequence up a mountain, I’m optimistic that this will result
    in an awesome display of the character’s ability to be fast."

    I laugh. And laugh. And laugh.

    Alright, who had a midnight snack and didn't clean up the crumbs? Because now we're gonna have to spray for witches again.

  • InternetMagpie

    Nothing says "I'm the opposite of greedy and lazy!" like the third film in a franchise.

    Also, Harrison Ford? HOW COULD YOU?!

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    In the last ten years:

    K-19: The Widowmaker

    Hollywood Homicide


    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Crossing Over

    Extraordinary Measures

    Cowboys & Aliens


    That's what happened. Man stopped giving a crap loooong ago.

  • The man has no dignity left. He'll do anything.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I think you are being a bit harsh on Calista Flockhart.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    Well played, sir.

  • PDamian

    I was in college when Pee-Wee's Big Adventure came out. I used to babysit for one of my professors, and one Saturday, she gave me some cash and asked me to take her two kids, five and seven years old, to the movies for the afternoon. We saw Pee-Wee, and I thought everything was fine until she called me the day after, furious because I took the kids to a horror movie. Apparently, Large Marge gave both kids screaming nightmares. I explained, and she calmed down some, but she never let me take the kids to the movies again.

  • Viking

    I was in high school when I saw it. Nearly pissed my pants. Hated that part, loved the movie otherwise. I like scary movies and books, but hate being startled. When my heart bounces around in my chest, it hurts. Feels like being physically struck in the heart organ.

  • emteem

    Sly giving Willis career advice is like me giving Stallone juicing advice.

  • Arran

    How dare you suggest that the man paid $12m to make Over the Top is greedy and lazy.

  • Xikar

    This comparison makes no sense unless you also happen to be an aging roid monkey.

  • Oh, Tina, and your damn intelligent, mischievous eyes, and the way you set your jaw. You should be ashamed...

  • John W

    I know why they're stuck to the wall: static cling.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Some of them look like they did the "lick the palm suction cup thingy" like Steve Martin in The Man With Two Brains.

  • John W

    Somebody on another site had a better suggestion as to why they're doing what they're doing: planking.

  • sourbob

    I don't understand the 3600 frames per second thing. Wouldn't projecting that footage at 24fps make him 1/150th as fast as normal? They would need to shoot him at *fewer* than 24 fps to make him look faster, right?

  • BWeaves

    I think they're going for the Steve Austin Bionic Man thing, where if you film something that's supposedly fast in slow motion, it's more believable.

  • Maguita NYC

    Urgh. Miss f-cking Piggy!

    The sound of her nasty grating shrill voice makes me want to slowly file my nails up and down a blackboard. This hellion of a hog needs to be heavily medicated and mellow the f-ck down. It wouldn't hurt if she'd stop acting a lot less like a bleached-out fake-lashed over-accessorized tacky shrew, and tone down the physical raginess! For Kermit’s sake, safety and well-being please, Less hog, more patsy.

    Day 17 - no coffee.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    This is on NO coffee? Sweet.

  • You're dead to me. THAT DOWNVOTE IS FROM ME.

  • Maguita NYC

    EFF YOU TOO! You try listening to that hog shrill and screech on a shitty day! With NO coffee.

  • L.O.V.E.

    You work for my boss too?!?

  • I upvoted simply for the utter contempt in your typing.

    I mean, if there is a Muppet to hate, I understand it being Miss Piggy, but still, DAMN MAGUITAR.

  • NateMan

    The rest of it is interesting, but the most important thing EVER is The Muppets trailer. Wooo, more Muppets!

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Yeah, Bruce Willis' career is OVER if he doesn't make Expendables 3. If we're lucky, that movie ends the careers of everyone (Except Terry Crews) involved and we don't get an Expendables 4.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    WHOA NOW. No need to wish such ill will upon Jet Li and The Statham. They're just along for the ride.

  • $27019454

    Nah. They're expendable, too.

    I hate me.

  • TK

    You're not alone.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Stop making cliched threats and get out of his basement.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I rather think that the franchise was expendable right from the start. Li and Statham certainly are not.
