Richard Dreyfuss, star of the upcoming mobster comedy “The Crew,” will be presented with the Hollywood lifetime achievement award of the fourth annual Hollywood Film Festival.
Mace Neufeld, who is producing “Sum of All Fears,” the latest in the series of films based on Tom Clancy novels, will be given the Hollywood achievement in producing award.
Both will receive their awards as part of a gala ceremony Aug. 7 at the Beverly Hilton.
Dreyfuss won the Oscar for best actor for “The Goodbye Girl” in 1977, and starred in such films as “Jaws” and “Mr. Holland’s Opus.”
“Mr. Dreyfuss is one of Hollywood’s most distinguished and highly regarded actors. His stellar performances are a perfect example of what actors should strive for,” said Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive director of the festival.
Neufeld’s other Clancy producing credits include “Clear and Present Danger,” “Patriot Games” and “The Hunt for Red October.”
“Neufeld’s great talent and command of his craft have made him one of Hollywood’s most accomplished and well-respected producers,” said de Abreu.
