Gregg Allman Urges ‘Midnight Rider’ Director to End Production
Gregg Allman has asked filmmakers to stop work on his biopic.
According to antimusic.com:
In a personal letter send to Randall Miller, the director of the project, Allman appeals to the director “from my heart” to stop production, rather than continue as has been rumored.
Allman was very excited at first with the idea of a film about his life but changed his mind after a fatal accident on the set that killed camera assistant Sarah Jones, as well as injuring others.
On February 20th of this year, the crew was filming on a train bridge over the Altamaha River in Wayne County, Georgia, when a train came through and left them little time to escape. Jones was struck by flying debris.
It was unclear if the crew had the proper clearance to be filming there.
