Production Will Resume On “Rust” After Alec Baldwin And The Producers Have Reached A Settlement Agreement With Halyna Hutchins’ Family
A week has come and gone and still no word from the Santa Fe District Attorney’s office as to whether or not they will be filing criminal charges against anybody for the on-set shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust. Similarly, Alec Baldwin and his wife have gone an entire week without having another baby, so one might assume that no progress at all has been made on either getting justice for Halyna’s death or in the creation of a new Baldwinito to help keep us focused on the importance of living in one’s truth. But that’s not the case. Deadline reports that Halyna’s husband Matthew Hutchins has reached a settlement agreement with Alec and other Rust producers in the wrongful death suit he filed against them back in February. Surprisingly, the settlement would give Matthew a producing credit on Rust, and production is set to resume in January with “all the original principal players,” including director Alec and the man he also shot, director Joel Souza.
Anne Heche Suffered A Severe Brain Injury And Is Not Expected To Survive (UPDATE)
UPDATE: Anne Heche’s rep tells TMZ that although life support machines are keeping her heart beating so that doctors can preserve her organs for donation, she is “brain dead” and that is considered death under California law.
Shortly after Anne Heche crashed her Mini Cooper Clubman into a parking garage before hitting a house in a fiery crash, her ex Thomas Jane and sources said that she would pull through but had a long road to recovery ahead of her. But then Anne’s rep gave a very bleak update by saying that she lost consciousness shortly after the double crash and was still in a coma. And last night, her rep delivered even more horrible news by saying that she suffered an anoxic brain injury and will mostly like not survive.
Harry Styles Canceled His Copenhagen Show After A Shooting At A Mall Close To The Venue
It seems like we can’t go a full day without hearing about or being eerily close to a gun-driven nightmare. This weekend was sadly no exception. There were many shooting deaths across the country including the mass shooting in Highland Park, IL on Fourth of July morning. And across the ocean, there was a deadly shooting at a Copenhagen, Denmark mall that spurred Harry Styles to cancel his show that was supposed to take place at a nearby venue that evening.
Matthew McConaughey Gave A Speech At The White House Asking For “Gun Responsibility”
There have been 34 mass shooting incidents in the two weeks since an 18-year-old with 2 newly purchased AR-15 style assault rifles slaughtered 19 elementary school students and two teachers in Matthew McCounghey’s hometown of Uvalde Texas. At the time of the shooting, Matthew issued a statement on Instagram pussyfooting around the elephant gun in the room. But Matthew put his heart where his mouth is yesterday and called for lawmakers to impose stricter gun laws such as background checks, red-flag laws, waiting periods and to raise the minimum age to purchase AR-15 style weapons to 21. Matthew, speaking from the White House press briefing room, says that “responsible gun owners are fed up with the 2nd Amendment being abused and hijacked by some deranged individuals,” which, unsurprisingly, has enraged some deranged individuals.
Halyna Hutchins’ Family Has Sued Alec Baldwin And Others For Wrongful Death
The family of late cinematographer Halyna Hutchins is suing Alec Baldwin for wrongful death for his involvement in the tragic accidental shooting on the set of Rust back in October. The lawsuit claims Alec “recklessly shot and killed Halyna Hutchins.” It’s not just Alec who’s being sued; defendants also include armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, assistant director David Hall, a bunch of production companies, and the company that provided the ammunition. Despite Alec’s interview claim that he never pulled the trigger on the gun that killed Halyna, the suit is saying he did. They allege that Alec pulling the trigger, plus many, many lapses in safety on-set, led to Halyna’s death.
Hannah Gutierrez-Reed Has Filed A Lawsuit Against The Person Who Supplied The Ammunition For “Rust”
While Alec Baldwin is busy trying to erase “find sexy Latinas in my area” from his search history before the police get a hold of his phone, Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed continues to try to cover her own ass by filing a lawsuit against a man named Seth Kenney, the owner of PDQ Arm & Prop, who she claims provided the ammunition for the film, including the live round that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza. TMZ says that even though Alec, who held the gun that killed Halyna, is not named in her suit, Hannah claims that he ignored her request to attend a “cross draw training session” with her prior to the unscheduled rehearsal in the church. She also claims that assistant director Dave Halls assured her he would be “sitting with the gun” during the rehearsal that she wasn’t allowed to attend because of COVID protocols. Hannah says if she had been there, she never would have allowed Alec to point the gun at Halnya.
