Allman Film Stopped After Fatal Accident
You may have heard about young woman worker getting killed last Thursday on the set of the upcoming film based on Gregg Allman's memoir, Midnight Rider. They were filming a fantasy sequence involving a bed on some train tracks and somehow a train that they weren't expecting came along....A few others were injured by debris. Much dispute over whether the film makers' had gotten permission to do this shoot and they may be in some legal difficulty. So it's possibly quite significant that they suspended filming today and released workers and actors.
