Sly is coming to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

You can also hear the name chants... Rocky, Rocky, Rambo, Rambo.

In the third installment of its popular “An Evening With ...” series, Fallsview Casino Resort has booked Sylvester Stallone for a pair sit down sessions on Feb. 24 and Feb. 25. Stallone has followed in the footsteps of other entertainers such as Al Pacino, Sean Penn and even Hulk Hogan (who does the talkfests with a number of his wrestling mates).

The clever format will have the handsome 65-year-old Stallone talk about his career with a moderator and then take questions from the audience. He is tipped to be on stage for anywhere from 90 minutes to two hours.

Both the Pacino and Penn sessions sold out. Hogan and Friends talks at other casinos have also pulled strong numbers.

Stallone is expected to sell out the casino’s Avalon Ballroom. Tickets, which start at $90, go on sale at noon, Nov. 11.

Besides Stallone, other acts booked for February at Fallsview Casino include Lynyrd Skynrd on Feb. 16 and Feb. 17, the Band from TV starring “House’s” Hugh Laurie and Jesse Spencer and “E.R.’s” Scott Grimes on Feb. 18, Feb. 19 and Feb. 20, and Rascal Flatts on Feb. 23.

Tickets for all of the shows also go on sale at noon, Nov. 11.


Sylvester Stallone speaks to Entertainment Tonight about his Steve Austin injury during 'The Expendables'...

Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell (one-time WWE Raw guest host) caught up with Sylvester Stallone on-set at his new movie, "Bullet to the Head," to discuss the film's progression before an April 2012 scheduled release date. Stallone noted he's still feeling the effects of neck surgery that was required after he suffered an injury at the hands of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin shooting "The Expendables" last year. Austin was required to tackle Stallone, who accidentally landed on a pile of bricks. Stallone said, "It's never really the same. "You're just able to function a little bit better."


Rambo game in development...

MCV have revealed that a Rambo video game will arrive in stores next year, courtesy of UK-based publisher Reef Entertainment and supplier Creative Distribution. Reef fended off competition from other publishers to secure the game rights to Rambo from film company StudioCanal. The deal allows Reef to develop and release a number of titles based on the popular Sylvester Stallone movies. The first three Rambo films – First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III – have grossed over $600m to date.

Craig Lewis, commercial director at Reef said: “Rambo will be a triple-A title on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and will capture the gritty atmosphere and full-on action which made the Rambo movies so successful.”
