Alec Baldwin Reacts To Shooting Tragedy On The Sets Of “Rust“
On-set tragedies are not a new thing, but someone losing their life due to negligence is not new either in Hollywood. Proving this is the incident where on the sets of “Rust“, Alec Baldwin accidentally shot Halyna Hutchins from a dummy gun and injured one. Hours before being shot to death (accidentally), Hutchings shared a post of the shoot location and looked excited to film. Little did she know it’s going to be her last! Unfortunately, she lost her precious life due to negligence. But why so much negligence at the hands of the staff? If they would’ve checked everything properly, maybe this wouldn’t have happened. Maybe life would’ve been saved.
Alec Baldwin took to Twitter to express his grief and sadness for the incident that took place. Moreover, he updated that he’s fully cooperating with the police during the interrogation. He also shared that he’s constantly in touch with Hutchings’ family. That’s sweet of him. Though, he cannot undo the whole thing and bring her back! Check out his tweets:
Will The Filming Begin Soon Or Is It The End?
The movie is about an outlaw who has a bounty on his head and must travel to Kansas to break his 13-year old grandson out of prison when he is convicted of accidental murder and sentenced to hang. This isn’t the first time the movie’s shooting saw a hurdle. Earlier when the shooting began, the director was injured that halted the movie’s shooting.
Now that this incident took place, nobody knows the fate of the movie. Maybe, they just might scrap it off! Or maybe it depends on Alec Baldwin’s condition in this case. Whatever it is, the movie will surely be remembered no matter if it’s released or not!
