The tragedy struck yesterday at filming set from Rust, the new movie of Alec baldwin which is being filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
As reported Deadline, a failure in a prop gun was the cause of the tragedy, although the Santa Fe Sheriff’s department is still conducting the initial investigations of the investigation.
The latest information received about the tragedy indicates that Alec Baldwin (Mission Impossible: Fallout) was the one who wielded the aforementioned prop weapon.
The two people hit by the shots, a man and a woman, were taken to a hospital in Albuquerque, where the woman would end up succumbing to the wounds.
It’s about the cinematographer Halyna hutchins, who has to his credit films like Archenemy.
The other person injured in the accident was the director of Rust, Joel souza (While the city sleeps), which for now remains stable.
The filming of Rust has naturally stopped. Filming was taking place in Bonanza Creek Ranch.
With the authorities conducting the investigation at this time, not much more information has emerged, but it will surely begin to arrive in the next few hours and days.
There are not a few who have already recalled the similar accident that occurred in the filming of El Cuervo, which claimed the life of Brandom lee.
Rust is meant to be a Western. Bladwin is accompanied in the cast Travis fimmel (Vikings), Brady Noon, Frances Fisher and Jensen Ackles (The Boys).
In addition to the investigation opened by the New Mexico authorities, it must be clarified what has gone wrong with the prop weapon so that its use has resulted in the death of one person and injured a second.
We will be attentive to the information that arrives from New Mexico. From the writing of Hobby Consolas we wish to convey our condolences to the family and friends of Halyna Hutchins. Rest in peace.
