    It’s been a year since cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed in an accident on set of the western film Rust. It has now been decided that filming should continue despite the tragedy. That’s what actor and producer Alec Baldwin has agreed with Hutchins’ heirs.

    The portal Deadline.com first reported on the agreement. The film is said to continue shooting with the original cast from January 2023. At the same time, Hutchin’s husband Matthew Hutchins joins the production as executive producer. The widower had filed lawsuits against the film’s producers, including Baldwin, in late 2021. He is now withdrawing this lawsuit as part of the out-of-court settlement.

    “I have no interest in participating in allegations or blaming[the producers or Mr. Baldwin],” Hutchins said in a statement. “All of us believe that Halyna’s death was a horrible accident. I’m grateful that the producers and entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna’s final work.”

    “We are grateful to everyone who helped resolve this tragic and painful situation,” Baldwin wrote on Instagram. “Throughout the difficult process, everyone tried to do what was best for Halyna’s son.” ‘ said director Joel Souza. “All of my efforts on this film will be dedicated to honoring Halyna’s legacy and making her proud.”

    In the incident, Baldwin had been aiming a prop gun towards the camera when a shot went off. It wasn’t just a dummy, it was a working weapon. However, it should only have been loaded with blank cartridges. How real ammunition ended up on the film set is still unclear. Baldwin later emphasized that he did not pull the trigger.

    Various members of the film team had accused Baldwin’s producers of general negligence on the set. The 24-year-old armorer is said to have had little experience and was also employed for two jobs at the same time.
