Norris revealed his conditions for signing up to the film in an interview to a Polish magazine.

“'In Expendables 2', there was a lot of vulgar dialogue in the screenplay,” he explains. “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. Producers accepted my conditions and the movie will be classified in the category of PG-13."

For Chuck's sake... Norris hates swearing
The first ‘Expendables’ film scored commercial success despite excessive violence and bad language, but star Sylvester Stallone confirmed the cursing will be toned down for the follow-up.

Speaking to AICN, the freakishly ripped 65-year-old said: “The PG13 rumor [sic] 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...”
