BALDWIN CHARGED WITH MANSLAUGHTER, REMAINS IN LEAD ROLE Actor Alec Baldwin faces an involuntary manslaughter charge following the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust in October 2021. The 64-year-old star of Beetlejuice and Glengarry Glen Ross was rehearsing a scene when a prop revolver he was using fired a live bullet. Rust ’s armourer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, was charged with the same offence. Baldwin won’t be charged with shooting director, Joel Souza, despite being hit by the same bullet that killed the Ukrainian. Baldwin remains in the lead role as filming continues, his lawyer has confirmed. Matt Hutchins, the victim’s widower, stays as executive producer. Hutchins worked on 30-plus feature-length films, shorts and miniseries, including Archenemy , Darlin’ , Blindfire and The Mad Hatter , in roles such as DOP and associate producer. An investigation by Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office is yet to find how rounds got on-set.
