Sylvester Stallone is coming to Gouna

It’s true. Yes, the Legend, Sylvester Stallone, has just been announced to attend this year’s El Gouna Film Festival Second Edition The opening ceremony will kick off at 6 PM on Thursday 20th, September.

We’re thrilled when we heard the official announcement of El Gouna Film Festival team a few hours ago.  Sylvester Stallone: the critically acclaimed actor, director and scriptwriter Sylvester Stallone will be in attendance at #GFF18 where he will be awarded the Career Achievement Award.

Although now 72 years old, Stallone’s hasn’t slowed down since cinematic classic, Rocky – which was also written by ‘Sly’ – propelled him into international fame. Even now, with the action star spearheading box office favourite, The Expendables and its two sequels, as well as his reprisal of the Rocky Balboa character in Creed, Stallone is still one of Hollywood’s biggest box office draws when it comes to action and a universally popular figure in the industry and with audiences.

Life's not about how hard of a hit you can give... It's about how many you can take and still keep moving forward.
