'Rust': See First Look Photos from Alec Baldwin Movie Where Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins Was Fatally Shot

First look at Alec Baldwin's film 'Rust'
The Avenue

The film's cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, was shot and killed on set during filming in October 2021.

Two years after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed on the set of Alec Baldwin's film, Rust, first-look photos of the movie have been released. 

In pictures shared by the film's production company The Avenue, Hutchins' work is at the forefront of two snaps -- one of actress Frances Fisher standing in a doorway in a tiered petticoat dress and another of a lone ranger on a hill. 

Three additional photos showcase the work of Bianca Cline, who took over for Hutchins after production on the film resumed in April 2023. The movie, which also stars Supernatural alum Jensen Ackles and newcomer Patrick Scott McDermott, went on a year-and-a-half hiatus following Hutchins' death. 

The other photos show McDermott standing up in front of a room full of people, two riders side by side in front of a setting sun and another picture of a rider on horseback.

Hutchins was killed Oct. 21, 2021, when the prop gun Baldwin was holding suddenly discharged, striking and killing the cinematographer and injuring director Joel Souza.

In the two years since tragedy struck in New Mexico, lawsuits were filed, criminal charges were filed -- then dropped, for Baldwin -- and allegations were made, including that the film's armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, consumed alcohol and smoked marijuana during filming of the Western.

Filming was shut down after the tragedy but resumed production in April 2023. In May, Baldwin took to Instagram to commemorate the end of filming on the project.

In November, footage from the New Mexico set of Rust showed Baldwin handling and discharging a prop gun, and speaking with crew members about safety concerns he has regarding the use of the firearms. The footage, obtained and published by NBC News, was reportedly filmed days before the tragic fatal shooting. 

The five videos showed Baldwin in character as he rehearsed scenes for the Western drama. The footage also featured Baldwin firing prop guns while rehearsing and staging a scene, and, in two of the videos, Baldwin expressed concern for the safety of some crew members, and subsequently had them change and rearrange their positions and locations to prevent potential injury.

In one video, Baldwin can be seen holding a prop gun in his hand and he asks someone off-screen to move to the "other side of the camera" explaining, "I don’t want to shoot towards you."

Baldwin has repeatedly insisted he did not pull the trigger on the prop gun and has staunchly maintained his innocence.

The film, written and directed by Souza, has yet to receive a release date.
