NY Producers to honor pair

LA PGA fetes Kennedy, Marshall

The Producers Guild of America has tapped producing team Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy to receive its David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures.

Nod will be presented at the 19th annual PGA Awards on Feb. 2 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

This year, under the banner of the Kennedy/Marshall Co., Kennedy produced “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” and “Persepolis” and Marshall produced “The Bourne Ultimatum” and completed production on “Crossing Over,” starring Harrison Ford and Sean Penn.

The duo’s currently producing “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” starring Brad Pitt, and has joined George Lucas and Steven Spielberg to produce the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones series.

The pair’s credits include “The Sixth Sense” and “Seabiscuit.” Marshall and Kennedy partnered with Spielberg to form Amblin Entertainment, which produced “Schindler’s List,” the “Back to the Future” trilogy, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?,” “Cape Fear” and “The Color Purple.”

Under Amblin, Kennedy also collaborated with Spielberg on “Munich,” the “Jurassic Park” series, “War of the Worlds” and “A.I.: Artificial Intelligence.”

In 1991, Marshall left Amblin to pursue his directing career, leading to the creation of the Kennedy/Marshall Co.

Marshall began his producing career as an associate producer on “Paper Moon.” His other credits include “Raiders of the Lost Ark” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” and the Bourne trilogy.

Kennedy was associate producer for Marshall on “Poltergeist” and began an association with Spielberg as a producer on “E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial.”
