    Alec Baldwin reaches an agreement with the family of the filmmaker he accidentally killed

    The family of Halyna Hutchins, the Ukrainian cinematographer who died in 2021 from an accidental shot by Alec Baldwin during the filming of the film rust has reached an agreement with the actor to drop the charges in the lawsuit for involuntary manslaughter, as reported by both parties in separate statements. Matthew Hutchins, widower of Halyna Hutchins, will become executive producer of the film under the deal and will receive an undisclosed share of the profits.

    Halyna Hutchins, 42, died in October in Santa Fe County, New Mexico on the set of a western after being shot by Alec Baldwin with a prop gun, which was supposed to be loaded with blank cartridges. Also injured was the film’s director, Joel Souza, 48, who was taken to a Santa Fe hospital and immediately released.

    Hutchins’ family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against not only the actor, but also the producers, the companies behind the film, and other crew members alleging numerous violations of industry safety standards and regulations.

    “We have reached a settlement, subject to court approval, in our wrongful death case against the producers of rust, including Alec Baldwin and Rust Movie Productions, LLC. As part of that settlement, our case will be dismissed. The shooting of rust, which I will now executive produce, will resume with all the original lead actors in January 2023. I have no interest in getting into recriminations or placing blame (on the producers or Mr. Baldwin). We all believe that Halyna’s death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna’s latest work,” Hutchins said in a statement.

    “Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained a desire to do what is best for Halyna’s son. We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation,” Alec Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said in a separate statement.
