Liam and Bruce sittin' in a tree………
Back in September, we heard that Liam Hemsworth had signed on to The Expendables 2 in the role of a sniper!
Now, we're hearing that Liam will likely be spending EVEN MORE time with Bruce Willis, because he's currently the frontrunner for the role of John McClane's son in
Die Hard 5: Die Harderer A Good Day to Die Hard.
Other actors up for the role include Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and Gotti: In the Shadow of my Father's Ben Foster.
We def think Liam could be an inneresting choice for this role…although
Jesse Aaron could be a good pick as well!
Who would U like to see as Bruce's son in
A Die Hard Day's Night the fifth Die Hard flick???

But the good news is that the movie is still a GO, even without her!
There were some murmurs last week that the planned Gotti film with John Travolta and Al Pacino had hit a financial snag that it couldn't get out of, thus the movie was being shelved. However, today a rep from Fiore Productions is insisting that the movie is "very much moving forward" and revealed they are "expecting a late 2012 theatrical release."
If that is their plan of attack, then production on the John Gotti biopic must be getting underway soon, but there is one loose end still to tie up. And her name is Lindsay Lohan.
Even after MONTHS of negotiations,

That remains to be seen.
Ben Foster has signed a deal to star in the lead role of the new flick, Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father. Ben will be playing opposite John Travolta as John Gotti Jr.
Great news for Ben - except

Gangster drama continues!
Yesterday, we heard that Joe Pesci was suing the producers of Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father for $3 million and punitive damages.
He was claiming he had a locked deal to play the role of Angelo Ruggiero which required him to end his healthy diet and gain 30 pounds for a pay of $3 million….but he says producers reneged on the deal and offered him a lesser role for only $1 million.
Now, producer Marc Fiore is speaking out against Pesci, and he's insisting that Pesci pulled himself out of the project after director Nick Cassavetes exited the movie last April.
Here's what Fiore had to say about it:
"Before we had a deal, Mr. Pesci walked away. He's wasting his time and everybody else's time. I might be a newbie in town. This newbie is not going to get bulled around."
What'cha have to say about that, Joe???
