Actor Harrison Ford will receive a lifetime achievement award at the Zurich Film Festival. The “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” actor will be honoured for his hugely successful career in Hollywood, at the annual film gala in Switzerland Oct 4, reports contactmusic.com.
"Harrison Ford has had one of the most remarkable careers of any actor in cinema, helping to propel two of the greatest movie franchises by bringing to life iconic roles that have become just as famous as the films themselves," festival directors Karl Spoerri and Nadja Schildknecht said in a joint statement. The statement read: "Few actors have commanded the leading man role that Harrison Ford has embodied throughout his career, and continues to showcase in every new project.”
The 71-year-old actor will next feature in the upcoming young adult fantasy film “Ender's Game”. He last starred in critically acclaimed baseball movie “42”.
