Since the incident, Baldwin claimed that he was not responsible for the director’s death. Instead, he accused Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the person in charge of the weapons and ammunition on the set at the time, of being solely responsible for the tragedy.
Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is also accused of manslaughter in the same case. David Halls, Rust’s assistant director, has decided to plead guilty to negligent use of a deadly weapon.
Recall that in October, Halyna Hutchins’ husband reached a settlement in his wrongful death lawsuit against Baldwin and the Rust producers. At the same time, Baldwin announced the resumption of filming of Rust for January 2023.
