The agreement allows the recording of ‘Rust’ to continue and the lawsuit against him can be dropped
Actor Alec Baldwin has reached an agreement with the family of Halyna Hutchins, the cameraman who died last year while shooting the film ‘Rest’. Baldwin has reportedly reached an undisclosed settlement in the manslaughter charge brought against the actor and others, according to a statement from his attorney. The settlement allows the movie to continue shooting and the lawsuit against it to be dropped. The lawsuit, filed in Santa Fe, USA, in February against the American actor and other members of his team, revealed numerous violations of industry standards.
“We are pleased to announce today the resolution of the civil suit brought on behalf of cameraman Halyna Hutchins’ family,” Baldwin said on social media on Wednesday. Throughout “this difficult process (…) everyone has maintained a specific desire to do what is best for Halyna’s son” and for this “we thank everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation”, added the actor to it.
The recording of ‘Rest’ will resume in January 2023 with all the original protagonists. Film director Joel Souza, who was also injured in the accident, is also expected to return to the film.
