LOS ANGELES: The Film Society of Lincoln Center has named Robert De Niro the recipient of its 44th annual Chaplin Award, which honors major industry talents. 

De Niro will take home the 2017 trophy for a four-decade acting career that stretches from early work including "Mean Streets," "Raging Bull" and "The Godfather Part II" to more recent projects such as "Silver Linings Playbook", reported Variety.

He is also the high-profile co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, launched in the wake of 9/11 in an effort to boost the economic prospects of lower Manhattan. 

The 73-year-old actor-producer will be honored by the Film Society at a springtime gala featuring notable guests and presenters as well as movie and interview footage drawn from De Niro's career. 

He joins a list of previous Chaplin recipients that includes Alfred Hitchcock, Elizabeth Taylor, Meryl Streep, Billy Wilder and last year's honoree, Morgan Freeman. 

The 44th annual Chaplin Award gala is set for May 8. 

Prior to that, De Niro's latest project, the Broadway musical adaptation of "A Bronx Tale," which he co-directs, opens in December.
