Double Oscar nominee John Malkovich will be honored for his life's work with the Golden Eye award at this year's Zurich International Film Festival.

Malkovich's career stretches back nearly three decades and has included everything from the acclaimed period drama Dangerous Liaisons (1988) to action thrillers In the Line of Fire (1993), Con Air (1997) and the RED franchise to the self-referential dramedy of Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich in 1999.

The ceremony will be followed by the gala screening of Malkovich's latest, the thriller Cut Bank from director Matt Shakman.
