Gregg Allman has dropped his lawsuit against producers of the Allman Brothers biopic after reaching an out-of-court agreement.

The veteran rocker filed legal documents in April to stop production on Midnight Rider, a film based on his autobiography “My Cross To Bear,” after production assistant Sarah Jones was hit by a train and killed in February.

In the lawsuit, Allman claimed the company’s rights to his memoir had expired because bosses had failed to meet production deadlines.

The singer’s lawyer, David Long-Daniels, told a judge at a court in Savannah, Georgia on Tuesday that a settlement has since been reached with Unclaimed Freight Productions.

He adds, “We have come together and reasoned with one another.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the lawyers refused to discuss details of the deal, including whether the film’s director Randall Miller can continue making the movie.
