However, Matthew Hutchins, married to the director, surprisingly announced in October that he had reached an understanding with those responsible for the film for which he became executive producer of Rust and that the recordings resumed this year in the state of Montana.

The sheriff unable to find out
The cinematographer died when a revolver handled by the actor went off during the filming of Rustin Santa Fe County, New Mexico state, after Gutierrez-Reed checked the revolver and Deputy David Halls turned it over to him as a “cold weapon” without live ammunition.
Baldwin has defended his innocence in different interviews with the media, alleging that the responsibility to comply with gun safety in Rust was assigned to Gutierrez-Reed and that he never pulled the triggerbut that the gun went off because it was defective.
Hutchins’ death also triggered a series of cross-lawsuits in which Balwin sued members of his team, arguing that they gave him a loaded firearm; while Halls countersued for “active negligence.”

The investigation of the office of the Santa Fe County sheriff still hasn’t been able to figure out how they got to the recording set.
