German film producer, director and screenwriter. He attended the University of Television and Film Munich in the 1970s, and bought a stake in the fledgling studio company Neue Constantin Film in 1979, becoming its executive director. Under his leadership, Constantin Film evolved into one of the most successful German film businesses. As of 2005, he was chairman of the supervisory board and still owned a substantial stake in the company. Eichinger also produced some movies independently. One of Eichinger's last films was about the left-wing terrorist group Red Army Faction (RAF) based on the book Der Baader Meinhof Komplex by Stefan Aust.

In 1991 he was a co-founder of Summit, the Los Angeles-based production and film sales company. Due to the success of Twilight, Summit eventually became Summit Entertainment.

In December 2006, he married Katja Hofmann, a journalist and writer. He has a daughter from a previous relationship, Nina Eichinger, an actress and TV presenter.

Eichinger died of a heart attack in Los Angeles on 24 January 2011 at the age of 61. His widow published his biography BE in September 2012.
