The Producers Guild of America has named Charles Roven as the recipient of its 2018 David O. Selznick Achievement Award to recognize his body of work in motion pictures.
Roven will receive the award at the 29th Annual Producers Guild Awards on Jan. 20 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Roven’s credits include “Wonder Woman,” Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” and the upcoming “Justice League,” which opens Nov. 17 and stars Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Amber Heard, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller. Roven received a best picture Academy Award nomination for “American Hustle.”
“Chuck Roven is a producer’s producer,” Producers Guild Awards Chairs Donald De Line and Amy Pascal said. “Whether he’s working with fiercely independent voices or within the heart of the studio system, Chuck brings a seriousness of craft and an incredible instinct for story to every set he runs. We’re proud to call him our colleague and thrilled to be able to celebrate him and his work at the Awards.”
The 2017 recipient of the Selznick Award was Irwin Winkler. Previous recipients include David Heyman, Stanley Kramer, Billy Wilder, Clint Eastwood, Jerry Bruckheimer, Brian Grazer, Laura Ziskin, the team of Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, Scott Rudin, and Steven Spielberg.
“I am grateful to my peers and colleagues at the PGA for recognizing me with this award named after true industry legend David O. Selznick,” said Roven. “It is an incredible honor to be included among such an illustrious and inspiring group of filmmakers.”
