Legendary Carry On producer Peter Rogers has passed away at the age of 95.
Peter Rogers, producer of the Carry On series of films, has passed away at the age of 95. Rogers was one half of the creative duo that brought the Carry On franchise to screens with his partnership with director Gerald Thomas spanning 31 films between 1958 and 1992. A new entry in the franchise has been in development for several years with the rumoured title of Carry on London. Many names have been attached to the project but it’s been stuck in limbo for some time now. With the death of Rogers it seems unlikely the film will enter production.
Rogers and Thomas gave the world the very first Carry On film in 1958 with the first entry in the series being Carry On Sergeant. The success of the films made the duo one of the best known British producers of their time and the series is still one of the longest running in the world. As well as the Carry On films Rogers also produced the ATV television series Carry on Laughing. Other films produced by Rogers included Bless This House and The Big Job.
