William Hurt has pulled out of his starring role in “Midnight Rider,” in which he was set to play musician Gregg Allman.

Production on “Midnight Rider” was halted after camera assistant Sarah Jones was killed in a train accident during preproduction in February in Georgia.

Hurt had come on board the project in December.

More to come.
