Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer of the film "Rust", was shot and killed by Alec Baldwin on set in October 2021. In January 2023, the actor was charged with manslaughter, but the charges against him were dropped three months later.

The 65-year-old actor has been charged with manslaughter again after new evidence emerged.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new evidence shows that "the gun the actor was holding had been altered".

If found guilty, the actor could face up to 18 months in prison.


In 2021, there was a tragic accident in the US state of New Mexico during the filming of the movie "Rust". Famous actor Alec Baldwin caused the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set and seriously injured director Joel Souza.

The actor was charged with "manslaughter" for the death of the cinematographer on set.


Testifying after the fatal accident on the set, Baldwin said that co-director Halls gave him the gun and told him it was "safe". Co-director Halls, on the other hand, said in his statement that he did not know that there were "real bullets" in the gun. Thus, it was revealed that the gun in Baldwin's hand had real bullets.
