Alec Baldwin in Rust: Experts reveal how criminal charges will affect the film

Some observers say people will “definitely” go to the Western “Rust” despite lead actor Alec Baldwin facing accusations over the death of the film’s cinematographer.

Melina Spadoni, a lawyer for Rust Movie Productions, confirmed to Fox News Digital that the film is “on track to be completed with Mr. Baldwin in the lead role and Joel Souza as director.”

Spadon also confirmed that the project would include “safety supervisors and unionized crew members and would prohibit any use of working weapons or any ammunition.” Live ammunition was reportedly banned from the set of the “Rust” film.

One expert told Fox News Digital that the tragedy on the set of “Rust” could actually lead to much higher numbers at the box office.

“Actually, a much larger audience knows a lot more about ‘Rust’ because of this terrible tragedy,” Kelsey Kintner, vice president of Red Banyan, explained to Fox News Digital. “I’m sure people will be curious to see how the producers handled the film in light of the tragic circumstances and would also be interested to see Alec Baldwin’s performance because such a very serious charge is hanging against him.”

However, trademark expert Eric Schaeffer pointed out that for a large part of people, the film is untouchable.

“For those of you who brake in highway accidents and take the time to make a 90-degree turn and stick around, they’ll watch it,” Schafer told Fox News Digital. “But for millions of others, ‘rust’ is dust. They won’t touch it. They’ll go be near it like they’re a dirty bomb in their neighborhood.”

Experts agreed that weapons will likely continue to be used in the film despite the tragic shooting that occurred on the original set in 2021.

“I think they’re going to try to find a way to capture the thirst for experience that some want — the thirst for the awful — while respecting those who should still be here and on this planet,” Schafer noted.

Kintner added, “The movie is a western in which an outlaw tries to get his grandson released from prison, so the gun and the violence will definitely still be a part of the movie. But one thing is for sure, there will be serious safeguards that will be put in place to make sure there is no live ammunition on the set.” .

Indeed, one would hope that all film sets would review and evaluate their safety protocols in light of this highly preventable incident. Ultimately, it would be appropriate to remember Helena Hutchins not only for her work but also for making a difference in making film sets safer going forward. “.

It was announced that “Rust” would be completed after Halina’s family settled a lawsuit against Baldwin and other members of the production. The movie was not finished in New Mexico.

“Halina’s widower is now the executive producer of the film and understandably wants the finished product to pay tribute to his late wife’s final work,” said Kintner. “Given his involvement and commitment to completing the latest Halyna production, it makes sense to move forward.”

Schaeffer called this move aDisgusting money grab.”

“It shows a huge disrespect for Halina, all for the sake of Hollywood profits, at a time when the star could face jail,” Schafer told Fox News Digital.

Baldwin will be charged with two counts of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Hutchins. The cinematographer died on October 21, 2021, after being shot by a gun Baldwin was carrying.

Sousa was also injured in a church shooting at Bonanza Creek Ranch in New Mexico.

Baldwin’s lawyer called the decision to charge the actor a “miscarriage of justice.”

“This decision discredits the tragic death of Halina Hutchins and represents an appalling miscarriage of justice,” Luke Nicas of Queen Emmanuel told Fox News Digital in a statement. “Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun—or anywhere on set. He relied on the professionals he worked with, who assured him that the gun had no live rounds. We’ll fight those charges, and we’ll win.”

Manslaughter is a Class D felony punishable by up to 18 months in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Duane’s second charge is manslaughter in the commission of a lawful act, which “requires evidence that there was more than negligence involved in the death,” according to the DA’s office. It is also punishable by up to 18 months in prison and a $5,000 fine.
