GREGG ALLMAN: More Trouble With Midnight Rider
The Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider is seemingly cursed. On Wednesday, word leaked out that William Hurt, who was supposed to play Allman in the film, has dropped out of the movie.
This latest blow comes after camera assistant Sarah Jones will killed during filming in February. Following Jones’s death, which occurred when a train hit crew members filming on a trestle, an “I REFUSE to work on Midnight Rider” Facebook account sprung up.
However, producers are hinting the film will go on, with one source close to the production telling Deadline that the filmmakers “were already looking to recast some roles,” including the Allman character.
