Bruce Willis Sued for Allegedly Walking Off Set

2/27/2009 9:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bruce Willis: exclusiveBruce Willis is being sued by a production company that claims the actor committed to a bargain-basement deal to direct a movie and then walked off the set, never to return.

Foresight Unlimited claims it inked a deal with Willis to direct a movie called "Three Stories about Joan," starring Owen Wilson and Camilla Belle (Joe Jonas' GF). Willis was supposed to get $196,404 to direct the flick, budgeted at $20 mil.

The lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, claims "Willis abruptly and without notice terminated his services as director for personal reasons and walked off the set." The suit doesn't get more specific.

The suit seeks more than $4 mil in damages.

Willis' legal pit bull, Marty Singer, tells us the suit is "absurd" and that the movie collapsed because the producers didn't have the money to pay anyone. Singer says the producers were required to salary money in an escrow account, but never did. He also says Willis will sue the producers for the fee they promised.

What a loser! He is an arrogant jerk!! He's also very immature! He believes "everyone is 25 or 26 at heart" What a load of BS! Typical of Hollywood idiots who refuse to accept the fact that they are getting old and wrinkled! LOL!! I wouldn't be surprised to find that all of the positive comments are either from him or his stupid girlyfriend or one of his stupid brats or maybe that he hired someone to put a positive spin on all of his spoiled brat BS!! He is typical of the arrogant jerks permeating Hollywood, well at least amongst the old timers segment! LOL!! Most of the younger ones seem smart enough to learn from the old farts mistakes and not run around acting like a bunch of self absorbed loser! Bruce needs to take his money and his little gold digging skank and his three brats and go away somewhere! I hear he has a place in the Turks and Caicos islands, that would be far enough away, I guess, to stop being this annoying pain in the a**.

do not think that is giong to happen because bruce might be right this time peace all
