Richard McCallum (born Auguste 23, 1952 in Heidelberg, Germany) is a film producer most famous for his work on the Star Wars prequel trilogy and special editions as well as The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. He also worked extensively with the British television writer Dennis Potter, producing much of Potter's later work in the late 1980s and early 1990s after Potter parted company with his long-term producer Kenith Trodd.

Unlike most producers, McCallum enjoys shooting on location (rather than on a soundstage) because he likes the feeling of not being in control and that anything can happen. McCallum once joked that his sole purpose in life is to realize George Lucas's creative vision. During the late 2000s and early 2010s, McCallum was attached to produce Star Wars: Underworld, a live-action Star Wars TV show that would have been Lucas's second live-action series based on one of his original properties after Young Indy, but the series was postponed indefinitely in 2010 due to budget constraints and McCallum himself left Lucasfilm Ltd. in 2012.

McCallum is the stepson of actor Michael York.
