The Departed and 30 Rock actor, Alec Baldwin was charged with involuntary manslaughter for the shooting and eventual death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in New Mexico, while Rust was being filmed there.
Celebrities have their privileged lives upended by reality, and even though they may mingle in exclusive circles, reality can sometimes be tragic. For instance, a few A-listers have occasionally committed murder on purpose, while at other times they have killed someone unintentionally. And one such instance is the fatal shooting case involving Baldwin on the Rust set.
Director Joel Souza was injured, and Hutchins was killed when Baldwin accidentally discharged a pistol that was allegedly loaded with blanks while he was practicing. The 64-year-old actor will continue to be the movie’s lead, according to the film’s attorney.
According to the most recent reports, the shooting death on the Rust set was a tragic accident. However, an industry insider has hypothesized that a crew member may have intentionally loaded the gun with the real bullet to exact “revenge” on the troubled filmmaker, out of stress.

Was Alec Baldwin’s Fatal Shooting an Evil Plan to Exact Revenge on Him?
According to John Dilbeck, a veteran TV location manager from Hollywood, Alec Baldwin’s fatal shooting may not have been an accident but rather a form of retaliation. In an interview with the Sun, Dilbeck claimed that the Pearl Harbor actor’s fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was just a small glimpse into the workings of Hollywood movies.
As a result of the negative impression, he gave insight relationship between the cast and crew. Dilbeck is willing to consider the possibility that Baldwin was duped by a crew member. He didn’t intend to kill anyone,
“But I do believe somebody may have deliberately put that according to the chamber to set him up because they were tired of his abuse,” Dilbeck added.
In addition, he accused The Departed actor, along with some other actors of being egotistical, and laid some of the blame on him. According to him, these actors
“created the parameter of danger by their own orchestration of cutting money and costs, and they are absolutely responsible. And when I say they, [I mean] Alec Baldwin is responsible. He is an executive producer. He has done this long enough to know better. He’s tried to blame virtually everyone else.”

He Kept On ‘Pushing And Pushing The Crew’
John Dilbeck cited the high cost of COVID-19 protocols and the constant cost of producing a movie as the reasons for this. Alec Baldwin should be made an example of by the industry for breaking the rules, according to crew members, who are left with only a smaller share of the pie.
He concluded his statement with,
“He kept pushing and pushing the crew. We know there were many crew strikes leading up to that incident. They had multiple strikes, even on the day of the shooting. If I was a location manager on Rust, I would have stopped and shut their permit down. I could have saved someone’s life potentially like I was trying to with Nancy.”
Dilbeck, who has already been seen as a top TV location manager, also claimed that we only hear about this Rust Shooting incident because it involved the A-lister, ‘Alec Baldwin,’ but there are also many other people suffering behind the scenes.
