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

“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 announcing 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).

“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.”

A funeral service is scheduled to be held on Nov. 2 in New York, according to THR. Macgregor-Scott’s family has requested that donations be made in his memory to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
