Hollywood is still reeling from the accidental shooting on the set of the Western film, Rust, in which cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza was injured. Production on the film has been suspended while an investigation is underway. A vigil was held for Hutchins in Albuquerque, and other mourners gathered in California.
In response to the tragedy, The Rookie and The Boys announced bans on “live” guns on set moving forward. A petition to outlaw live guns on set has been signed by more than 26,000 people so far, and a California state senator has vowed to draft legislation towards that end.
Reports are surfacing that hours before the accident, half-a-dozen crew members quit the production in protest of unsafe working conditions, long hours, and housing conditions. Additionally, the assistant director who reportedly told Alec Baldwin that the gun was “cold” had a personal behavior complaint filed against him on a previous project for being “very aggressive” and “intimidating on set.” Others say he was lax with safety precautions on set.
Video of one of Rust‘s co-stars, Jensen Ackles, discussing having a training session with a gun on the set emerged briefly on the internet. The video was recorded at a Supernatural fan event over the weekend of October 15-17 and has since been largely pulled down off of the internet. There is no evidence that Ackles was involved in the scene that led to the fatal shooting. Ackles has since responded to Hutchins’ death:
Alright, have you watched Midnight Mass on Netflix yet? If so, this is an intelligent essay on the series and how it exposes the dark underbelly of organized religion that all believers should have to reckon with.
If there is a scene where he takes off his helmet and smoke just pours from it I will take back everything i said about Disney Star Wars https://t.co/8LJsNb9gaE
