A lawsuit filed by the Allman Brothers Band singer in Savannah says Unclaimed Freight Productions lost its rights to make the film "Midnight Rider" when it failed to begin principal photography by Feb. 28. Production was suspended after a train plowed into director Randall Miller's crew on a trestle Feb. 20. Crew member Sarah Jones was killed, and six others were injured.
The lawsuit filed last week says producers have told Allman's representatives they intend to revive the project despite the singer's objections. A spokeswoman for the producers said Monday they had no comment.
