After a brutal legal back-and-forth, Alec Baldwin and the legal team from “Rust” reached a settlement with the family of the late Halyna Hutchins.
Hutchins was killed on the set of “Rust” in 2021 after Baldwin discharged a firearm he says he thought was a harmless prop gun.
Hutchins’ family filed a wrongful death suit against Baldwin and others, and they have now reached an agreement in that case.
The settlement amount has not been disclosed and will still have to pass a court approval process.
But it may mark the first opportunity for Baldwin, Hutchins’ family, and others to put the horrific tragedy behind them and begin healing.
And in a bizarre development, “Rust” will resume filming with her widower producing the film.
Hutchins died October 21, 2021, and filming will resume “with the original principal players” in January 2023. Hutchins’ husband Matthew will be at the helm.
Matthew explained, “I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame (to the producers or Mr.Baldwin). All of us believe Halyna’s death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna’s final work.”
Money solves all problems.
I wonder how much her life was worth $$
