Mel has been hitting the gym (along with a stack of protein shakes, probably) ahead of his role in 'The Expendables 3'.

The 'Lethal Weapon' star has joined the cast of the second sequel to the 2010 action film, where he will star alongside Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas.

Bruce Willis was due to reprise his role, but was dropped from the project for being 'too greedy' and demanding $1m more than he was offered to appear in the film.

Hitting out at his co-star on Twitter, Slyvester Stallone wrote: "WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!! " he wrote.

"GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE," he added.

A source later told The Hollywood Reporter: "[Bruce Willis] said he'd drop out unless he got $4 million. A million dollars a day. Stallone and everybody else involved said no.

"I think he was pretty surprised he was replaced in 72 hours by Harrison Ford - a better actor, a much nicer person and a more interesting direction for the film," they added.
