Bruce Willis may have been fired from Woody Allen's latest movie
Bruce Willis has dropped out of Woody Allen's latest movie, according to Deadline. And it may not have been his choice.
The film, which is currently untitled, stars an ensemble cast including Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart ("Twilight"), and Jesse Eisenberg ("The Social Network").
According to the Deadline story, Willis had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict. He has plans to star in an upcoming Broadway adaptation of Stephen King's classic novel, "Misery."

But the same day that news broke, photos surfaced of Willis on set at Allen's movie in Beverly Hills.
Now some have questioned if Willis' exit really is due to a scheduling conflict. Actor availability is often worked out before cameras start rolling and The Wrap's Jeff Sneider tweeted that Willis was actually fired.
