‘There’s Nothing We Can Do To Bring Your Mother Back’: Alec Baldwin On Rust Filming

Alec Baldwin will continue to film Rust as he faces charges of involuntary manslaughter in filming on the set of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Melina Spadone, a lawyer for the western’s production, confirmed the news on Friday to CNN, adding that “on-set safety supervisors and union staff members … will prohibit any use of work weapons or ammunition.”

Baldwin is one of three cast and crew members facing charges over the accidental shooting, New Mexico prosecutors announced Thursday. Gunsmith Hannah Gutierrez Reed was also charged with involuntary manslaughter, while first assistant director David Halls agreed to plead guilty to negligent use of a lethal weapon.

A person with knowledge of the film had previously said The New York Times newspaper that Baldwin would still be the film’s lead and Joel Souza, who was injured in the shooting, would return as director.

Thursday’s decision comes more than 15 months after the fatal shooting in October 2021, when a gun wielded by Baldwin went off on set. A single bullet hit Souza in the shoulder before fatally striking Hutchins in the chest.

Baldwin has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and claimed he was told the gun was “cold”.
