Much like his “Celebrity Apprentice” gig, Gary Busey received the axe once again–this time from filming the upcoming horror flick Mansion of Blood, reports E!
While not exactly denying reports that several members of the production had complained to producers about the actor, Busey’s publicist tells E! News that “contractual issues” were to blame for Gary leaving.
“The situation was plagued by contractual issues and misunderstandings from the outset,” rep Michael Conley said. “Gary considers the episode concluded and has no further comment on the matter.”
Sources quoted by TMZ allege that the production was frustrated with the thespian, complaining that he was difficult to work with and had made inappropriate remarks to a woman on set.
Despite only shooting half of the scenes he was hired for, the wacky actor was given the boot and the rest of his scenes were rewritten and another actor brought in to finish up what was left.
Directed by Mike Donahue and starring Ray Quiroda, Tom Tangen, Eddie Salazar, Andre Agazaryan, Jaira Valenti and Chris Allaire, “ ‘Mansion of Blood’ is a grueling horror film set in an abandoned haunted mansion built in 1912 which is renovated in 2012 by millionaire Mason Murphy. To celebrate his new home he hosts a lunar eclipse viewing party at the mansion, inviting everyone in the small town of River Ridge.
A witch casts a spell under the eclipse to visit with the spirit of her dead boyfriend, but the magic runs out of control due to the magically charged items in the house. Thrown outside of normal space and time, the guests are trapped at the mansion until the curse can be broken.”
