Wrongful death: Alec Baldwin’s ‘Rust’ to resume filming

Alec Baldwin has reached a settlement with the family of Halyna Hutchins, after she was killed on a film set when he fired a prop gun.

Filming of Rust will continue in January, with Ms Hutchins’ husband Matthew on board as an executive producer.

A lawsuit filed against Mr Baldwin, producers and others, alleged several violations of industry standards.

All parties believe Ms Hutchins’ death was an accident, her husband said.

The exact terms of the settlement, which is subject to court approval, have not been disclosed.

In a statement, Mr Hutchins said that “all the original principal players” would be involved when filming resumes, which he said would “pay tribute” to his wife’s final work.

“I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame, All of us believe Halyna’s death was a terrible accident,” he added.
