CHICAGO (NewsNation Now) — Details are still being pieced together about what exactly happened on the set of the film “Rust” that left a cinematographer dead, a director wounded and the movie industry in shock.
NewsNation Prime premiered “Inside the Rust Set Shooting” to shed light on what happened last month on the New Mexico movie set.
An assistant director allegedly unwittingly handed movie star Alec Baldwin a loaded weapon and told him it was safe to use in the moments before the actor fatally shot a cinematographer, court records show.
The gun was loaded with live rounds, and when Baldwin pulled the trigger last month on the set of a Western, he killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Director Joel Souza, who was standing behind her, was wounded, the records said.
Allegations of misconduct, poor treatment and improper conduct have flown around in the weeks since the fatal accident.
