Alec Baldwin isn’t going to let a little thing like an involuntary manslaughter charge interrupt his career. “Rust” will continue shooting, if you’ll pardon the expression, and Alec is still in it.
An attorney for the movie says the production will now have, “on-set safety supervisors and union crew members and will bar any use of working weapons or any ammunition.”
Baldwin and the movie’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, are both facing involuntary manslaughter charges.
Assistant director Dave Halls agreed to plead guilty to a charge of negligent use of a deadly weapon.
He allegedly handed the gun to Baldwin on the set and told him it was safe, right before it went off, killing the cinematographer and wounding the director.
