The Exchange has added Randall Miller and Jody Savin’s upcoming Midnight Rider: The Gregg Allman Story to the AFM slate.
Unclaimed Freight Production’s Miller and Savin will produce the film, based on the bestselling autobiography of the same name. Open Road will distribute in the US.
Miller will direct autobiography focusing on Allman’s early struggles through the formation of The Allman Brothers Band and the group’s ultimate explosion on the music scene.
Savin and Miller are working closely with Allman and his manager Michael Lehman, both of whom will serve as executive producers. The film will include original Allman Brothers tracks as well as performances by the actor / musicians.
“This powerful story of one man’s journey through his brilliant and tumultuous rock ‘n’ roll career is extremely compelling and will be of keen interest to our international buyers,” said The Exchange CEO Brian O’Shea.
