Legendary filmmaker Dino De Laurentiis, producer of more than 160 films, has died at 91.
Over his nearly 70-year career, De Laurentiis worked on diverse projects like Serpico, Dune, Conan the Barbarian, and Hannibal, to name a few, earning him over 35 Academy Award nominations. Twice he would win the Oscar, both times for films by fellow Italian Fellini--in 1956 for La Strada and the following year for Nights of Cabiria. He is survived by wife Martha Schumacher and several notable offspring, including his son--fellow producer Aurelio De Laurentiis--and FoodNetwork's most attractive strained perma-grin, his granddaughter Giada. Out of respect for the dead, please don't dedicate that upcoming Conan remake to him.
