I was a huge fan of 2010's actioner, The Expendables. Gathering up all of yesterday's action stars, a thin 80s style plot, and most importantly the very violent, R-rated no holds barred action and fight sequences. It was every action fan's dream come true. So when I heard that there's a possibility that THE EXPENDABLES 2 (check out the teaser trailer) might get toned down just to please one man's request, I almost went mad..
Via AITH and Expendables premiere, as you know, the man, the myth, the legend, CHUCK NORRIS is part of the massive cast of THE EXPENDABLES 2 and he recently chatted with international site Gazeta, after translation, the following is what he said..
"Playing in this movie was a lot of fun. I play a super hero, who saves everybody's life."
"In Expendables 2, there was a lot of vulgar dialogue in the screenplay. Fot this reason, many young people wouldn't be able to watch this. But i don't play in movies like this. Due to that i said i won't be a part of that if the hardcore language is not ereased. Producers accepted my conditions and the movie will be classified in the category of PG-13."
What the bloody hell?! Look, I admire Norris, we all know he's da man. That's why we've got that long hilarious list of Chuck Norris' mythical awesomeness but do you think what he said above is bullsh*t or true? Cause if it's true, then that is very uncool of Norris to be messing with a sequel that we all hope would be as hardcore as the first installment. I don't want to see a PG-13 EXPENDABLES 2, do ya?!
THE EXPENDABLES 2 releases in theaters on August 17, 2012!

The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….
THE EXPENDABLES 2 opens August 17th, 2012
