Guillermo del Toro, Tommy Lee Jones, Luke Wilson and Bonnie Curtis will be inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame in March as part of the Austin Film Society’s 15th annual Texas Film Awards, which celebrate the work of prominent Texans in the film industry.

Mexico native Del Toro, the director of films including “Pacific Rim” and “Pan’s Labyrinth,” has been deemed an honorary Texan, since he relocated to the state while making his films “The Devil’s Backbone” and “Blade 2.” Actor-director Jones — whose pic “The Homesman” is currently on the awards circuit – as well as producer Curtis (“Saving Private Ryan,” “Albert Nobbs”) and actor Wilson (“Anchorman,” “The Skeleton Twins”) all hail from Texas.

Posthumously inducted into the hall of fame will be L.M. Kit Carson, the filmmaker and journalist.

The Texas Film Awards are set for March 12 in Austin, just before the start of the SXSW Film Festival.
