Gregg Allman dropped his lawsuit against the producers of "Midnight Rider" on Tuesday.

The case — Gregory Allman vs. Unclaimed Freight Productions Inc. and Film Allman LLC — was filed as an attempt to stop production on the film after the death of crewmember Sarah Jones.

Allman claimed in the lawsuit that the option to his life rights had expired before producers decided last month to resume production. Principal photography on "Midnight Rider" needed to have commenced by Feb. 28 — according to an amended option agreement that Allman and the producing team signed — but the production was halted on Feb. 20 when crewmember Jones, 27, was killed by a train during pre-production filming.

After that fatal incident, producers publicly announced they would suspend work on the film indefinitely.
