“Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “Jurassic World” producer Frank Marshall has been named the international filmmaker of the decade and will pick up his honor at CinemaCon, the annual exhibition industry convention and trade show taking place next month in Las Vegas.

In addition, Marshall will participate in a one-on-one discussion about his career during CinemaCon’s “international day” on April 11. Marshall joins “Birth of a Nation” director Nate Parker and Susan Sarandon among this year’s batch of honorees.

In a career that spans 45 years, Marshall has been closely associated with Steven Spielberg, as well as his wife and producing partner Kathleen Kennedy. The three filmmakers formed Amblin Entertainment, producing hits such as “Hook,” “Gremlins,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” and the “Back to the Future” trilogy. In 1991, Marshall and Kennedy left to form the Kennedy/Marshall Company, which produced “Signs,” “Seabiscuit” and all four of the “Bourne” films. Marshall took over as sole principal after Kennedy left to run Lucasfilm in 2012.

His upcoming credits include “The BFG” with Spielberg, “Sully” with Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks, and a big-screen version of the popular video game “Assassin’s Creed” with Michael Fassbender.
