Two producers who have worked with Steven Spielberg on such films as the ‘Indiana Jones’ series and ‘The Color Purple,’ Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, have won a permanent restraining order against a man they say has threatened to kill them, TMZ is reporting. The producers claimed in legal documents that Bret McDonnell left them 17 phone messages at their offices within a few days last month, warning Marshall he was going to die. McDonnell also referenced a suicide note meant for Kennedy.
McDonnell also allegedly claimed that while working as an emergency responder, he discovered 17 dead bodies on one of Kennedy’s movie sets. The legal documents the producers filed also state that he threatened the lives of various children.
Kennedy and Marshall received on Tuesday a three-year restraining order against McDonnell. He isn’t allowed within 100 yards of them; their company, Amblin Entertainment; Universal Studios; DreamWorks Studios or Lucas Films.
