- THE EXPENDABLES 2
The Expendables 2 will be R-rated according to Sylvester Stallone, crushing previous rumours that the upcoming sequel would be aiming for a family-friendly certificate to maximise its potential audience.
Giving The Stallone Zone a brief comment on the matter, Stallone said: “After taking in all the odd rumours and hearsay, EXPENDABLES II is an R.”
The film had previously been thought to have been toned down due to the involvement of Chuck Norris. The grizzled action star had reportedly insisted that the script involve no swearing if he were to sign on to make an appearance.
Indeed, Stallone himself had previously confirmed that the film would be a PG-13, telling AICN earlier in the year that the rumor was indeed true. “The PG-13 rumour is true,” he said, “ but before your readers pass judgement, trust me when I say this film is large in every way and delivers on every level.”
So we kind of thinking that the film will not have all the explictives that the first one had in terms of language, but it might be just as violent or even more so than the first.
