Regrettably not a Dick Cheney biopic, it was confirmed that Alec Baldwin set off a prop gun during the filming of his new move Rust and killed a person, and injuring the films director.
Not for nothing but this Lifetime movie plot was already aired.
I can’t imagine waking up one day to work on an independent film in New Mexico and just never coming home. That’s not a risk you think you are signing up for when you go to cinematographer school. Maybe a Marvel movie, with some shrapnel from a battle scene between Iron Man and Thanos, but not from Alec Baldwin’s prop gun.
The Sheriff’s office said in a statement that Hutchins and Souza “were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 68, producer and actor.”
No one was arrested in the incident, and no charges have been filed, the office said. Detectives were interviewing witnesses, and the incident remains under an “open and active” investigation, according to the Sheriff’s office.
Do you continue filming after this if you’re Alec Baldwin or the movie? Horrible for everyone involved.
