Who promised to quit the movie industry after Roy Kinnear's death in 1988 and apart from a music documentary that was already in the pipeline has kept their word?

As a guess, since Roy Kinnear died making one of his films, was it Richard Lester?

That is correct.
Upset at the death of his friend that he'd known since Help! and with the studio's bullish insistence that the film be completed on time he vowed never to work again and hasn't after finishing a documentary on Paul McCartney that was in development.
And good on him.

All yours.

I don't know about the second and last but the first and third are films about the making of a film.
