Peter Macgregor-Scott, ‘The Fugitive’ and ‘Batman Forever’ Producer, Dies at 69

Longtime Warner Bros. producer died Sunday following traffic accident

Peter Macgregor-Scott, producer on director Andrew Davis’ “The Fugitive,” the Joel Schumacher-helmed “Batman Forever” and “Batman & Robin,” and three Cheech & Chong flicks, has died following a recent traffic accident in Manhattan, TheWrap has confirmed. He was 69.

Macgregor-Scott’s rep told TheWrap that he died on Sunday, despite conflicting reports in other media outlets about the date of his death.

“We were like brothers who supported and relied on each other in an industry where that is rare. I will miss him dearly,” Davis told The Hollywood Reporter, when speaking about the longtime Warner Bros. producer’s passing.

Aside from projects with Davis and Schumacher, the producer’s credits include “The Jerk” (1979), “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” (1982), “Revenge of the Nerds” (1984), “Troop Beverly Hills” (1989), “Out for Justice” (1991), “Under Siege,” (1992), “A Perfect Murder” (1998), “Black Beauty” (1994), “Death to Smoochy” (2002), “The Guardian” (2006). Early in his career, Macgregor-Scott worked as a unit production manager on the 1978 frat comedy “Animal House.”

“From engineering train crashes in ‘The Fugitive’ to building Korean submarines for ‘Under Siege,’ huge Manhattan apartments in ‘A Perfect Murder’ and unique wave water tanks for ‘The Guardian,’ he worked with us to figure out how we could succeed,” Davis said. “He was beloved by the crew and cast who worked with him. Being Peter, he was funny and still as focused as one can be.”

Originally from England, he is survived by his brother, sound editor Ian Macgregor-Scott, and two children — daughter Elizabeth and son Taylor.

A funeral service is scheduled for Nov. 2 in New York, according to THR. The family has requested that donations be made in his memory to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
