U.S.-Ireland Alliance to fete Michael Burns

'Oscar Wilde' program takes place Feb. 21

The U.S.-Ireland Alliance will honor Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns at its “Oscar Wilde: Honoring the Irish in Film” program on Feb. 21.

Colin Farrell has been previously announced as an honoree at the event, to be held at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot. Irish singer Julie Feeney, Heathers and Declan O’Rourke will also perform.

In announcing the honor, US-Ireland Alliance president Trina Vargo cited Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games,” “Crash” and “Precious” on the feature side; “Mad Men,” “Nurse Jackie” and “Weeds” in TV; efforts to leverage its content into digital media initiatives; and several initiatives strengthening Lionsgate’s capital structure, including the recent completion of a new five-year, $800 million revolving credit facility.

Among those planning to attend the event include Jerry Lewis, William Monahan, John Moore, Jason O Mara, Oorlagh George and Fodhla Cronin O Reilly.
