Kopelsons named Hall of Famers

Arnold Kopelson and Anne Kopelson, the husband-and-wife producing tandem responsible for producing such films as “Platoon,” “Seven” and “The Fugitive,” have been inducted into Variety’s Showbiz Expo Hall of Fame, according to Gerry Byrne, vice president and publisher of Variety and Daily Variety.

“Considering their body of work and the dedication they bring to producing high-quality, high-entertainment films, Arnold and Anne Kopelson are quintessential Hall of Famers and ideal selections for Variety’s Showbiz Expo Hall of Fame,” Byrne said.

“Receiving this award is especially gratifying to Anne and me, as it is given by Variety to the people working behind the scenes who really make movies happen,” Arnold Kopelson said. “We accept this award on behalf of all those dedicated and passionate people who have collaborated with us in the production of our films.”

The Kopelsons follow in the footsteps of Steven Spielberg, last year’s honoree and the first recipient of the award.

Co-chairs of Kopelson Entertainment, the Kopelsons are engaged in an exclusive, five-year production deal with 20th Century Fox after being associated with Warner Bros. for seven years. The company’s film roster has collectively garnered 17 Academy Award nominations and more than $1.25 billion in worldwide box office receipts.

Upcoming Kopelson-produced pics include “Devil’s Advocate,” directed by Taylor Hackford and starring Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves, and “Mad City,” directed by Costa-Gavras and starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta.
