The lawsuit filed by Gregg Allman against the producers of his biopic Midnight Rider has been dropped.

Per The Associated Press, Allman and Unclaimed Freight Productions came to an out-of-court agreement, however, the details of the agreement have not been made public, and it is still unknown whether or not production will resume on the film.

Production on Midnight Rider has been on hold since February 20th, when 28-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones was killed in a train accident as the crew was filming a scene on a railroad bridge. 

Considering the tragic circumstances around the filming of Midnight Rider and that actor William Hurt, who was cast to play Allman, quit the project, it just seems like this film perhaps wasn’t meant to be, and that it would be best if it were dropped completely.
