Actor-director Mel Gibson will be honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic in July.

The Braveheart star will follow in the footsteps Dame Helen Mirren, Jude Law and John Malkovich when he receives the Crystal Globe award in recognition of his career as an actor, producer and director.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, festival tradition dictates that the recipient creates a short, humorous film featuring the accolade, which is used as a trailer in following years.

The 49th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival runs from July 4-12.
