Alec Baldwin's controversial movie Rust will resume production in January. In October 2021, production on the western was suspended indefinitely after Baldwin's prop firearm discharged during a rehearsal, injuring director Joel Souza and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Her family filed a wrongful death lawsuit over the incident in February, and on Wednesday, it was announced that all parties had reached a settlement, which involves Hutchins' husband Matthew boarding the project as an executive producer. "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," said Matthew, reports Deadline. "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.
