The Hollywood stalwarts were seen in a clip Stallone shared to social media in January of 2020, as he hosted Pacino at his home to meet celeb chef Guy Fieri.
‘I’m about to introduce the great Al Pacino to the great Guy Fieri, who’s gonna make some great food today,’ Stallone said in the clip, describing the interaction as a ‘meeting of the titans.’
Fieri shook Pacino’s hand and said, ‘What a pleasure, what a pleasure, I hope you’re hungry,’ to which Pacino responded, ‘I’m always hungry.’
Stallone’s upcoming projects include the sequels Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and The Expendables 4, both due out next year, as well as Paramount+ crime drama Tulsa King, in which he will play the part of Dwight ‘The General’ Manfredi.
Pacino’s forthcoming work includes a thriller titled Sniff, in which he’ll appear alongside Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and Danny DeVito; and an adaptation of King Lear, in which he’s slated to play the titular role.
