Antonio Banderas Joins 'The Expendables 3' Film

Good bye Willis, hello Banderas.

Congratulations to Antonio Banderas, as he joins the cast for the action-packed film The Expendables 3. According to Fox News Latino, Bruce Willis was dropped from the film last week over high salary demands leading movie producers to pick up Banderas along with other stars to take his place. Willis was offered $3 million for four days of work shooting in Bulgaria, but demanded $4 million or he would drop out.

Sylvester Stallone, the star of the franchise, had nothing but great things to say about The Mask of Zorro star, calling him “a consummate actor and a gentleman.” No details are known on Banderas’ character but it was reported that Mel Gibson will be the “bad guy.”

The anticipated film is set for release in August 2014.
