In a recent report from Deadline, the victim’s husband, Matthew Hutchins, said:

We have reached a settlement, subject to court approval, for our wrongful death case against the producers of Rust, including Alec Baldwin and Rust Movie Productions, LLC. As part of that settlement, our case will be dismissed. The filming of Rust, which I will now executive produce, will resume with all the original principal players on board in January 2023. I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame (to the producers or Mr. Baldwin). All of us believe Halyna’s death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna’s final work.”

As Hutchins’ husband steps in as executive producer, he will also receive a portion of the movie’s profit. Baldwin’s lawyer, Luke Nikas, said that everyone tried to do everything that is best for the victim’s son.

This announcement caused outrage from fans, and many were in disbelief at the decision to resume filming. A fan said that it is a bad idea and they have to scrap it. Others thought it is cursed and should not finish filming the movie anymore. Some were also angered by the thought of money solving everything. Check out some of the fans’ angry tweets:

Meanwhile, some fans defended Alec Baldwin and said that it is not his fault but the person in charge of the guns. They should not have any real guns on set in the first place. Some fans also believed that it is a horrible accident and that the actor should not be blamed. A Twitter user also said that Hutchins’s work should be seen and “it would be a shame to throw her work away.”

This traumatic accident has divided reactions from the public. Baldwin, known as an outspoken Donald Trump critic, was criticized by people who politicized the shooting. Twitter users even started the hashtag #AlecforPrison.
