Ed Pressman

'Wall Street,' 'Das Boot,' 'American Psycho' and 'The Man Who Knew Infinity' are among his many credits.

Germany's Oldenburg Film Festival will honor producing legend Edward R. Pressman for his contributions to international cinema.

Pressman, 74, is a giant on the independent scene. The cinematic résumé from his decades-long career includes such genre classics as Conan the Destroyer, Bad Lieutenant, The Crow and American Psycho.

More recently, Pressman produced Matt Brown's The Man Who Knew Infinity, starring Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons.

The Oldenburg Festival, which runs Sept. 13-17, will honor Pressman with a retrospective of his work. The German fest, which styles itself as “Germany's Sundance,” specializes in independent cinema, particularly U.S. genre fare.
