No Chuck Norris for EXPENDABLES 3

If/when Expendables 3 starts production, It will have to do it without Chuck Norris. The action star sat down with Access Hollywood recently and said;

“Nope. Just number 2. This is it for me…Oh, yeah. This is very special. Just to be able to do the film with guys I’ve known for many, many years. To get a chance to get in and fight with them, it was a lot of fun. Plus getting a chance to meet Terry Crews, who I hadn’t met before. And Jason Statham, whom I hadn’t met before. It was fun just to do that.”

While no official reason was given, Norris was vocal about wanting the film re-edited to receive a PG-13 rating. His departure is not a huge blow to the franchise. The beauty of The Expendables is that all the actors are… expendable. There are enough 80s action stars to replace the cast 100 times over.

      Chuck Norris doesn't mow his lawn, he dares it to grow.

      lol, i was thinking they were missing Steven Seagal in Expendables 2, just to round out who else was in there.

    • It was a bit of a shame when we discovered Chuck Norris wasn't in the newest film of Expendables but we've had him twice already, a change of pace might help shape another impression of the series. But still it was a film worth looking forward to.
