The man who teamed with Michael Douglas to launch Columbia-based production outfit Stonebridge Entertainment died today of cancer in L.A. Peter McAlevey was 58. The Suffern, NY, native was working as a Newsweek entertainment writer when Jeffrey Katzenberg recruited him to the new Disney team. During McAlevey’s tenure there, he partnered with Michael Douglas on Stonebridge, where they produced such films as Flatliners (1990), Double Impact (1991), and Radio Flyer (1992). Outside of Stonebridge, McAlevey also produced the romantic comedy Hard Promises (1991), starring Sissy Spacek and future CSI star William Petersen, which bowed at the Toronto International Film Festival. After Stonebridge shuttered in 1994, McAlevey launched Thunderbrid Pictures, which made such pics as Klash (1995) and the boxing remake Body And Soul (2000). Other credits include Shadow Hours (2000) and the System of a Down docu Screamers (2006). The Columbia University grad, who roadied for the New York Dolls during their 1970s heyday, also produced last year’s horror pic Kill Her, Not Me. McAlevey is survived by his wife, Melissa Hufjay McAlevey, VP Publicity at Warner Bros Home Entertainment, and their 4-year-old twin daughters.
