Expo to fete De Laurentiis

Prod'n vet to recieve award at Cinema Expo

HOLLYWOOD — Production vet Dino De Laurentiis will be feted with a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Cinema Expo International Convention in Amsterdam.

De Laurentiis, whose films have garnered 33 Oscar noms, is awaiting this month’s bow of his most recent project, Matthew McConaughey starrer “U-571.”

Next month Laurentiis will start overseeing production on “The Silence of the Lambs” followup “Hannibal,” to be directed by Ridley Scott and toplined by Julianne Moore.

“The career of Dino De Laurentiis is an extraordinary one,” Cinema Expo co-managing director Jimmy Sunshine said. “If you look at the films he has produced including Fellini’s ‘La Strada’ and ‘Nights of Cabiria’ (both of which earned Academy Award for best foreign film), you’re looking at one of the greatest producing careers in the history of film.”

De Laurentiis will receive his honor June 29 during the closing night ceremonies at the Cinema Expo, which attracts 2,000 biz execs to Amsterdam for seminars and film screenings.
