William Hurt Writes About Death On Gregg Allman Biopic Film Set

Following the death of a crew member on the set of the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider, actor William Hurt, slated for the lead, has written about the tragic day on the set.

The thoughts come via an e-mail obtained by the L.A. Times and note that Hurt was wary of shooting on the Doctortown Railroad Trestle in Georgia that fateful day.

"I said, 'Sixty seconds is not enough time to get us off this bridge.' There was a communal pause. No one backed me up. Then, we . . . Just went ahead. I took off my shoes, got on the heavy, metal hospital bed and began preparing," wrote Hurt, referring to the 60 seconds the crew told him in the event that a train came while they were on the trestle.

"[W]e didn't have sixty seconds. We had less than thirty," he added.

A federal investigation is currently underway to determine whether charges should be filed.
