Originally a rumor generated by Chuck Norris, it’s now been confirmed by Sylvester Stallone that The Expendables 2 will be rated PG-13.
The rumor started when Chuck Norris gave an interview in which he said the following (translated from the original source):
“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 erased. Producers accepted my conditions and the movie will be classified in the category of PG-13.”
Ain’t It Cool News asked Sylvester Stallone about the rumors, to which he replied:
“The PG13 rumor is true, but before your readers pass judgement, trust me when I say this film is LARGE in every way and delivers on every level. This movie touches on many emotions which we want to share with the broadest audience possible, BUT, fear not, this Barbeque of Grand scale Ass Bashing will not leave anyone hungry.”
