Alec Baldwin's Film "Rust" to Resume Filming Despite Involuntary Manslaughter Charges

In a surprising turn of events, production for the Western film "Rust" will resume shooting in the spring, despite actor Alec Baldwin being charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection to the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on set.

Returning to the project are a number of original crew members, including director Joel Souza, with the addition of safety officers from Tenet Production Safety and production designer Christine Brandt.

To honour Hutchins, who tragically passed away at the age of 42 after a prop gun went off during rehearsals in October 2021, cinematographer Bianca Cline will complete her vision for the film, while also donating her salary to charity.

The production company has confirmed that "working weapons and any form of ammunition" will be banned from the set and only union crew members will be used.

Baldwin has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter by the Santa Fe District Attorney's office. His lawyers have argued that the second charge is "unlawful," as the firearm enhancement was enacted seven months after the incident occurred.

Despite the charges, Baldwin will remain in the starring role of the film, which will continue to honour Hutchins' legacy and vision.

Relatives of Halyna have also filed a civil lawsuit against Baldwin earlier this month.
