Filming of Rust will continue after Alec Baldwin and the production company reached a settlement with the estate of killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
Baldwin settles over Rust movie set death
Actor Alec Baldwin and the producers of the Western movie Rust have reached a settlement in a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the family of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who Baldwin shot dead during filming last year.
As part of the settlement on Wednesday, production on the low-budget film will resume in January with the late cinematographer’s husband, Matthew Hutchins, serving as executive producer.
Joel Souza, who was wounded in the shooting, will continue as director and the same actors, including Baldwin, will play principal roles.
“I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame,” said Hutchins, a mergers and acquisitions lawyer.
