Filming for Alec Baldwin 'Rust' resumesthis week in Montana, according to the production company. This comes 18 months after a cinematographer was killed during a practice with Baldwin in New Mexico.
Baldwin will keep working on the project as both an actor and a co-producer. Melina Spadone, an attorney for Rust Move Productions, said through a representative that shooting will start up again at the Yellowstone Film Ranch on Thursday.
Baldwin is still in the lead part, even though he has pleaded not guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter. The main filming is starting up again in a new place in Montana.

Filming For Alec Baldwin 'Rust' Resumes

Rust will start shooting again here, almost exactly a year and a half after photographer Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed on set in New Mexico while practicing a scene in a different church.
Filming has moved to Montana's Paradise Valley, and Alec Baldwin will play the main character again even though he no longer faces charges of involuntary murder.
Last month, the production company settled with New Mexico's workplace safety officials over "serious" violations. They agreed to pay a $100,000 fine to end a harsh safety review that showed how complaints and accidents on set were ignored before cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed in October 2021.
Joel Souza will be back as the director. He was hurt when a bullet went through Hutchins and got stuck in his shoulder. In honor of Hutchins, Bianca Cline, the new cinematographer, will give her pay to charity.
The Yellowstone Film Ranch has a western town backlot with 28 different buildings, like a saloon, stable, and jail, which is perfect for a story about a 13-year-old boy who runs away with a known outlaw. But there won't be any ammo on set this time, and the production's lawyer made it clear that there weren't any live rounds last time, either.
Matthew Hutchins, a widower, offered a settlement to a wrongful death lawsuit that would make him an executive producer on a new version of Rust. This was done last year.
In Santa Fe, prosecutors are moving forward with charges of involuntary manslaughter against Baldwin and the person in charge of the guns, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed. Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed have both said that they are innocent.
During a practice, Baldwin pointed a gun at Hutchins. When the gun went off, Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza was hurt. Baldwin has said that he didn't pull the trigger and that the gun went off by mistake. According to a study by the FBI's forensics division, the gun could not have fired unless the trigger was pulled.
Between 20 and 25 days are planned for filming, and a documentary group will also follow the film until it's done. There are a lot of court cases going on at the same time as the shooting. At least five legal cases are still going on against Baldwin and the people who made Rust.
Baldwin and Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the original armourer for the movie, have also been charged with involuntary manslaughter, which carries a potential prison sentence of 18 months.
Baldwin won't go to the preliminary hearing because it will happen while he is in Montana shooting. There is one solved case, though. Halyna Hutchins's husband, Matthew Hutchins, sued for wrongful death after she died. As part of the deal, he will work on Rust as an executive producer.


Alec Baldwin was not charged with a crime after the shooting that killed photographer Halyna Hutchins. Filming for Alec Baldwin 'Rust' resumes again this week.
On Friday, officials in New Mexico dropped two charges of involuntary manslaughter that had been brought against Baldwin in February 2023. After Hutchins was killed by a bullet from a revolver Baldwin was practicing with while shooting the Western in October 2021, charges were brought against Baldwin.
