Chuck Norris Won't Return for "The Expendables 3"


From worstpreviews, After the first "The Expendables" film, fans made it clear that they wanted to see Chuck Norris in the sequel. Sylvester Stallone got in touch with Norris and made it happen. Unfortunately, that's when problems started.

Norris soon revealed that the movie will be PG-13, explaining that he wants all of his fans, young and old, to see the movie. Terry Crews confirmed the news, stating that Norris is to blame. But after a few months, Stallone began denying PG-13 repots, stating that it's just rumors.

"The Expendables 2" ended up being R-rated, but now comes word that Norris will not return for any future installments. "This is it for me," he said during the premiere. "It was special just to be able to do the film with guys I've known for many, many years. The chance to get together and fight with them. It was fun just to do that."

Chuck Norris was great in Expendables 2 but I'm not going to lose sleep over him not being in the third one. The most glaring omissions in this franchise are Steven Seagal and The Rock.

I thought Norris' all-too-brief appearances were great in Expendables 2. He still looks the same and the guy is pushing 70.

Uh... you mean "pretend fight" with them, right? That was a movie and all...

Fuck, I'm glad the presence of Mr. Fussypants didn't PG-13 this movie. (Not really a Norris fan.)

I agree with JSP, they should work everybody into this. Can they get Jeremy Renner but not Sam Worthington? That would make me smile.
