It’s not Indy 5 or Star Wars VII but Harrison Ford is joining another big franchise, The Expendables.

The BBC has reported that the Indy star is replace Bruce Willis who apparently has fallen out over money.  Stallone tweeted “greedy and lazy” and saying it was “a sure formula for career failure”.

The BBC say:

Actor Harrison Ford has joined the cast of the third film in the Expendables action franchise, filling a gap vacated by the departing Bruce Willis.

“Willis Out… Harrison Ford In!!!! Great News!!!!!” tweeted Expendables star Sylvester Stallone. “Been waiting years for this!!!!”

Willis played the role of Church in the first two films, which saw Stallone as the leader of a group of mercenaries.

Stallone apparently went on to criticise Willis on Twitter, calling the actor “greedy and lazy” and saying it was “a sure formula for career failure”.

Willis has yet to respond to the slight, which a Stallone spokesman later confirmed had been directed at the Die Hard star.

The Expendables topped the US box office chart when it opened in August 2010, a feat repeated when its sequel was released two years later.

Together the first two instalments in the franchise have earned almost $575m (£375m) worldwide.
