The FBI has released new details about the shooting incident during the filming of Peace, the unfinished film that turned into a tragedy. Actor Alec Baldwin was practicing with a revolver when a shot was fired, the shot that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
The recordings of Rust have been stopped since the accident that took place on October 6, 2021. Baldwin claims it was an accident and that he was not informed that there was ammunition in the revolver. Since then, an investigation into the incident has been ongoing. Leading characters in the investigation include Baldwin, assistant director Dave Halls, and gun chief Hannah Guiterrez-Reed.
Since the incident, Baldwin has maintained that he did not pull the trigger on the gun and that a shot was fired accidentally. A new report from the FBI reveals that the revolver cannot be fired without pulling the trigger. So far, the filmmakers, including Baldwin, have not commented on these findings. It was also determined that Hutchins’ death was an accident.
The incident sparked many discussions about safety on film and television sets. It was concluded that the safety of cast and crew is often overlooked in favor of a rapid completion of a production. In response, a petition was launched to ban the use of real firearms on sets. Baldwin would also be in favor of this.
A 13-year-old boy, left to care for himself and his younger brother in Kansas after the death of his parents in 1880, goes on the run with his long-estranged grandfather after being sentenced to the gallows for accidentally killing a boy. a local rancher.
A few months ago, producer Anjul Nigan announced that he would like to finish Rust and honor victim Hutchins by completing her latest work. As long as the investigation continues, it appears that Rust production will not continue.
