The tragedy that took place on the set of the western Rust remains unforgotten. After Alec Baldwin unintentionally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins the future of the film was uncertain until now. 

Rust filming with Alec Baldwins: What comes next?

Filming for 'Rust' is scheduled to resume in January 2023, with Halyna's husband Matthew Hutchins involved as executive producer. All cast members of the original cast will return for filming. 

In an Instagram post, Baldwin announced: "Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained the specific desire to do what is best for Halyna’s son. We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation." Matthew Hutchins, for his part, said he had "no interest" in getting caught up in blaming the producers or Baldwin.

"All of us believe Halyna's death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna's final work," he explained.

In October 2021, a tragedy occurred on the set of the western Rust, the cinematographer died from a shot fired by Baldwin. The gun had previously been accidentally loaded with live ammunition. The actor and film producers were subsequently sued by several people, including Halyna's widower Matthew Hutchins.

Now Baldwin and the Hutchins family have reached a settlement outside of court. Accordingly, both parties agreed that Hutchins' death was accidental. Details of a compensation payment to the widower and his son are not known. Through his involvement in the film project, however, Hutchins is expected to receive a share of the proceeds.
