Baldwin has voluntarily testified and no charges have been brought against him, being one of the first implicated in reacting to the accident. “I have no words,” he tweeted, showing his willingness to cooperate with justice and preceding another statement from the director of the film, who said “he was devastated by the loss of his friend and partner Halyna.” To the reactions of Baldwin and Souza we must now add that of Matt Hutchins , Halyna’s husband, who has shared a photo of him on Twitter. “Halyna inspired us all with her passion and vision, and her legacy is too significant to put into words,” he wrote.
“Our loss is enormous, and we ask the media to please respect my family’s privacy as we process our grief. We thank everyone for sharing images and stories from his life . ” Halyna Hutchins began working on British documentaries set in Eastern Europe, to later move to Los Angeles and be considered a promise of the guild. Another cinematographer, Stas Bondarenko , has also expressed his condolences on Hutchins’ death: “We have lost a truly unique artist, and it pains me to think of the images that she will not have a chance to create,” he said.
Throughout this weekend, the investigation has confirmed that Baldwin took the gun once they had assured him that it was not loaded, while details of a low-budget shoot that violated various security measures, including COVID protocols, have begun to emerge. In fact, hours before the accident, several members of the team had abandoned production due to these concerns, and in overcoming the media scandal, the producers of Rust have launched their own investigation.
