We think there might be more to this story!
On Monday, it was reported that Bruce Willis exited Woody Allen's new film due to a scheduling conflict, as he's set to star in a Broadway adaptation of Stephen King's Misery!
But suspicions were raised after the 60-year-old was seen on set yesterday, and was clearly filming a scene (above)! Willis was in costume, sitting in a car behind a camera with Jesse Eisenberg, being directed by Allen!

Usually, actors and their agents notice scheduling conflicts before filming begins. Which could mean that Willis' alleged "scheduling conflicts" was actually him getting the axe!
This wouldn't come as a huge surprise — the Midnight in Paris director has swapped out actors in the past. And Bruce has been publicly labeled as difficult to work with by directors ranging from Sylvester Stallone to Kevin Smith!
Allen's film still boasts an all-star cast that includes Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, and Anna Camp — so we hope no one else has a conflict in scheduling!
Do YOU think Willis really left the project due to his busy schedule, or was this just his PR team sweeping an uglier mess under the rug?
