Randall Miller - Randall Miller Considering Moving Midnight Rider Production To Los Angeles

Director Randall Miller is considering moving production on his stalled Allman Brothers biopic to Los Angeles after a camera assistant was killed in a freak train accident on the set in Georgia.

Sarah Jones, 27, was struck and killed by an oncoming train while shooting Midnight Rider on a railroad trestle in Wayne County in February (14), four days before cameras were officially due to start rolling on the project.

Production was suspended immediately after the tragic incident, but now Miller is making plans to get back to work and is contemplating relocating the cast and crew to California, where his production company Unclaimed Freight is based.

According to Deadline.com, filming could begin in L.A. as early as June (14).

William Hurt and Tyson Ritter signed on to portray Gregg Allman present and past in the project, and Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell's son Wyatt was cast as his brother Duane.

Meanwhile, the Georgia District Attorney is expected to meet with Wayne County Sheriff John Carter on Monday (21Apr14) to decide if any criminal charges should be filed over Jones' death.
