**** Editor Note *** this article originally stated that the rating was changed from R to PG-13. That turns out to be incorrect due to a mistranslation by a foreign media outlet. Turns out that it was the language, not the rating, that was encouraged to change.
We are talking about Expendables 2 featuring the Hollywood A-list of brawny stars including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Swarzennegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Stratham, Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris. The first Expendables was a buffet of violence. Thanks to the new star, Chuck Norris, the sequel to Expendables is toned down.
Here is what Chuck Norris had to say;
Screen Rant: “In Expendables 2, there was a lot of vulgar dialogue in the screenplay. For 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 erased. ”
Chuck Norris has been public over his Christian faith and even written a few faith-based and conservative books. One of Chuck Norris’ prime principles called Chuck Kuk Do, is “I will always remain loyal to my God, my country, family and my friends”. It is amazing to see Chuck Norris steer some of the biggest and violent-themed actors and get the whole project to be more family friendly. The next step is to see how the movie turns out, the box office results and finally how future Hollywood onlookers will respond. We hope for a positive on all three factors.
