Rust production and Alec Baldwin have reached a settlement with the estate of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
As part of the agreement her husband Mathew Hutchins will executive produce Rust.
The husband 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 movie will return to production in January 2023 with the original cast.
Matt continues saying, “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.”
The settlement is subject to court approval.
The Hutchins family filed a wrongful death lawsuit back in February.
