Academy to honor Eastwood with Kubrick award

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts/Los Angeles will honor Clint Eastwood with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia award for excellence in film.

The 15th Britannia Awards will take place on Nov. 2 at the Century Plaza Hotel.

Eastwood, who began his acting career in the mid-1950s, has directed more than 25 films and won Oscars for director and best picture twice: for “Million Dollar Baby” in 2004 and “Unforgiven” in 1992.

He most recently produced and directed the DreamWorks and Warner Bros.’ WWII drama “Flags of Our Fathers,” to be distributed in October by Paramount Stateside and by Warner Bros. internationally.  

Companion film “Letters From Iwo Jima,” told from the Japanese perspective, will be released internationally by Paramount this year, with Warners to release domestically in 2007.
