'Fight Club' Producer Arnon Milchan to Receive Best Producer Honor at Locarno
Milchan's credits include "Once Upon a Time In America," "Marley and Me" and "The Fantastic Mr. Fox."
CANNES – The Locarno International Film Festival is giving its best producer prize this year to Arnon Milchan, the Oscar-nominated producer of L.A. Confidential (1997), whose credits also include Fight Club (1999), Marley and Me (2008) and The Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009).
Milchan, a co-founder of indie production powerhouse New Regency Productions, was behind such global blockbusters as The War of the Roses (1989), Pretty Woman (1990) and Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005).
In Milchan’s honor, the Locarno Festival, which runs Aug.1-11, will also screen three of Milchan’s best-known films: Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in America (1984), Martin Scorsese’s King of Comedy (1983) and Terry Gilliam’s Brazil (1985).
“We are delighted to welcome to Locarno one of the last moguls of world cinema, Arnon Milchan, a lover of the arts and a visionary who can facilitate filmmakers in following their wildest dreams,” said Locarno’s artistic director Olivier Pere. Pere called Milchan, who has more than 100 films to his credit, “a risk taker and man of passion, whose courage, ambition and taste has enabled some of the most important masterpieces in contemporary cinema.”
Milchan will attend Locarno for the awards ceremony and will also give a public lecture on film.
