Post Gregg Begs 'Midnight Rider' Director Not to Resume Filming
As excited as I was about this project, this is most definitely the right thing to do. I'm just so sad that it took that this tragic turn.
:(

maybe i have a heart of stone, but i dont understand what one has to do with the other? i'm not downplaying the death; i'm sure it was a tragedy for many, but why cancel an entire movie for it? this makes no sense to me

no heart of stone friend, you just remember the old adage, "the show must go on!"

As sad as circumstances are, I'm with you on this one. Perhaps it needs a new crew for those that feel they can't continue.

I also think it would be an honor to the person killed if they were mentioned in the credits, or even a small image or montage memorial.

Here's my take....

This isn't happening because she died. Had she died in a complete freak accident that was not a result of questionable (at best) production process, I'm sure that production would have taken a pause and then come back to finish (like the latest The Fast & the Furious movie). The accident, and the resulting death and injuries, is an indication of a major breakdown in responsibility during production. Corners were cut, safety procedures were lax. This production was suspect from very early on. Add to that a death, injuries, lawsuits, the star backing out....and there's no way that they were going to win. Production crew were already organizing to boycott working on the film & people were starting to rumble about Gregg.

Best case scenario, production picks up later with an entirely different team. I really, really hope that happens. Then Sarah CAN be honored :cry:

Good call, Greg.
William Hurt had already quit.
I read Sarah Jones was killed on the first day of production, so they got nothing in the can.
Read the book instead, and use your imagination to visualize events.

I remember when Vic Morrow was killed on set in the filming of the movie "The Twilight Zone" didn't stop Steven Speilberg from filming :!: jus saying

Good point.
And Vic Morrow was great in that movie. We were all glad to see him one more time. Lucky for that movie, it was a last scene to be filmed.
Midnight Rider, Day 1 of filming.
Why did John Hurt quit? There may be more than we know. Like... those with the rights to make the movie may be _____ ? Greg knows best. It's his story.
