ShoWest honors Bernstein

Top producer earns award for 'Hurricane'

Armyan Bernstein has been named ShoWest 2000 producer of the year for his work on “The Hurricane,” which he also co-scripted.

The critically acclaimed biopic, which garnered Denzel Washington a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, has earned a slew of honors, including best picture noms from the Producer’s Guild, the NAACP Image Awards and the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. The screenplay recently won the USC Scripter Award, shared by Bernstein and co-writer Dan Gordon.

Prior to “The Hurricane,” Bernstein produced last year’s Kevin Costner vehicle “For Love of the Game,” as well as 1997’s Harrison Ford blockbuster “Air Force One,” among others.

As chairman of Beacon Communications, he’s in production on Beacon/New Line’s Cuban Missile Crisis drama “Thirteen Days,” with Kevin Costner. Next up will be Beacon/Universal’s “Family Man,” with Nicolas Cage.

Bernstein will receive his ShoWest honor at the convention’s March 9 awards ceremony in Las Vegas.
