Sylvester Stallone is facing allegations his film crew racked up a string of debts while shooting THE EXPENDABLES in Brazil and then left the country without paying up.
The Hollywood tough guy directs and stars in the upcoming blockbuster alongside other action heroes including Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and he filmed much of the movie on location in South America.
But Stallone and his production company is facing claims they failed to settle a bill with several local companies, as well as drivers, security guards and other workers, according to Brazilian weekly news magazine Veja.
The publication reports the producers owe more than $2 million (£1.3 million) to numerous parties.
