Alec Baldwin says Monday was his last day of shooting the movie “rust” In Montana, the actor posted about filming, which resumed in the state after it was halted following the death of the cinematographer. Halyna Hutchins, who was killed by a prop gun on set in New Mexico in 2021.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, Baldwin said he was sorry he couldn’t work with actress Frances Fisher, who also appears in the film. He posted a picture of Fisher and actor Patrick Scott McDermott and wrote: “Patrick I envy you.”
“It’s been a long and difficult road,” the post says. “But today we come to the end of the road. Congratulations to Joel, Bianca and the entire cast and crew. Nothing short of a miracle.”
His reference to Joel appears to be director Joel Souza, who was injured when the gun went off during a rehearsal in New Mexico.
After a lengthy investigation, both Baldwin and on-set gunsmith Hannah Gutierrez-Reed were charged with manslaughter in January 2023. New Mexico prosecutors dropped Baldwin’s charges in April. However, they said that “this decision does not absolve Mr. Baldwin of criminal guilt and charges may be re-filed.”
Hutchins’ family also filed a lawsuit after her death, and in October 2022, a lawyer for Hutchins’ husband, Matthew Hutchins, saying a deal had been reached and that Matthew would be named executive producer of the film.
Filming resumed in January, more than a year after the incident brought it to a halt. It is unclear where or when the film will be released.
