De Laurentiis Company

1919 — 2010

"Across a 70-year career, Dino would produce, fund or otherwise contribute to over 600 films."

The De Laurentiis Company

Founded in Italy in 1947, has provided a number of Oscar-nominated cinematic masterpieces throughout its history, including Serpico, Three Days of the Condor and Ragtime. Today, the company continues to break new ground and push the boundaries on both the large and small screen with exciting properties that include NBC’s Hannibal, now in its second season, and the forthcoming Barbarella series, set to be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Drive).

The De Laurentiis Company is located on the Universal Studios lot, where they currently have a long-standing first-look deal. The company has also overseen construction and management of several additional international film studios, including Screen Gems, Warner Bros./Village Roadshow and CLA-De Laurentiis Studios.

Augostino “Dino” De Laurentiis

Born August 8, 1919 in Torre Annuziata, Italy. Although having studied to be a cinematographer and actor in his youth, Dino found a different path into film making, as one of world's most prolific film producers and financiers. Across a 60-year career, Dino would produce, fund or otherwise contribute to over 600 films.

In his earlier work in Italy, Dino found international acclaim with Oscar winning films such as La Strada (1954) and Nights of Cambria (1956). In the late 1960’s, Dino made the move to Hollywood where he would continue to produce hits such as Serpico (1973), Three Days of the Condor (1975)and Ragtime (1981). He would sustain this pattern for three more decades passing away in 2010 at the age of 91. His legacy of hard work and determination to the craft of film making lives on in the work being done at the De Laurentiis Company today, which brings to TV hits such as Hannibal (2013).
