Gregg Allman wants to put a stop to Midnight Rider.  That's the title of the movie about the rocker's life that was put on hold after a crew member was killed during filming in February. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Allman Brothers co-founder has written a letter to director Randall Miller asking him to pull the plug on the out of respect for Sarah Jones and her family. Jones was struck and killed by a train during filming in Georgia.  Six others were injured. 

A Facebook campaign is underway urging the film's crew boycott the production, which is slated to resume in June.  Actor William Hurt, who was cast as Allman in the biopic, also withdrew from the project last week.
