Alec Baldwin will remain as the star of the movie “Rust” as it restarts production, the movie’s lawyer has confirmed.
The 64-year-old actor will be charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2021 death of Halyna Hutchins, despite previously insisting he did not pull the trigger.
Hutchins’ widower Matt, who shared his 10-year-old son Andros with the late cinematographer, will stay on as the film’s executive producer — a role he took on as part of the wrongful death lawsuit that was settled for an undisclosed amount in October.
“Rust” will also see its director Joel Souza return, despite being injured in the shooting.

The trigger was obviously pulled.
Who does this idiot think pulled it?
Anyone but him. What a loser.
Hopefully they find a more experienced armorer, and don’t force them to do double-duty as a prop-master.
Would the American public go see a real murder movie?
"This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it."
"Are you referring to the Russians, sir?"
"No, Alec Baldwin is behind us with a gun."
has this guy been arrested, booked and released on bail like any one of us would have been?
I heard Baldwin is a producer of the film. Did he cut costs? It’s something the widower should find out. Joel Souza Is nuts for going forward directing the film. I will work through all manner of adversity but wouldn’t work with Baldwin
Executive Producers finance a movie and share in the profits, which hopefully in this case will be zero. So what a cheap sleazy way to settle the civil suit by the husband. Thus this was clearly Alec’s idea.
This is when the DA prosecuting the case friles a motion in court to Prevent Baldwin from being within 100 yards of ANY FIREARM and be Prohibited from having anyone in his employ or employed on his behalf for protection for security to possess any Firearm or Ammunition.
Somehow reminds me of the movie Network - ‘hey this could be really good for the box office receipts’.
The difference between “them” and “us”.
He’s part of the protected elites. It’s not who ya know, it’s who ya blow.
Read somewhere yesterday that Halyna Hutchins’s next project was a documentary on pedifiles in LA. Things that make me go....hmmmmmmm
I WATCHED THE VIDEO AS HE PRACTICE DRAWING THE SINGLE ACTION PISTOL IN REHERSAL BEFORE THE LADY WAS KILLED. WHEN HE BROUGHT THE PISTOL OUR OF HOLSTER AND UP HIS FINGER WAS ALREADY ON THE TRIGGER. IF HE KEEPS HIS FINGER ON THE TRIGGER WITH IT HELD BACK AND HE HAS COCKED THE PISTOL AND KEEPS HIS FINGER ON THE PULLED BACK TRIGGER WHEN HE RELEASES THE HAMMER THE PISTOL WILL FIRE. SEVERAL GUN SAFETY RULES WERE NOT FOLLOWED IN THIS INCIDENT IN MY OPINION BY MORE THAN ONE PERSON PROBABLY.
If Baldwin is still on the set I would have the Cinematographer where a bullet proof vest.
They are banking on the “hope” that all the notoriety around Baldwin and the movie will result in a “boffo” box office.
My guess is that if this movie is actually every completed, the reviews will be off the charts crap.
Who is the target audience for this?
unless it’s a chick flick?
I assume that the typical demographic of Western fans are probably NOT going to see it.
1. it has Alec Baldwin
2. he killed somebody on set due to his own negligent fire arms handling.
3. it has ALEC BALDWIN
“Alec Baldwin will remain in lead role of ‘Rust’ despite being charged”
“...will be charged with involuntary manslaughter...”
WILL BE charged.
He has NOT yet been charged.
It’s a simple language.
Tenses: past, present and future, it’s not that hard for people educated in urinalism.
