Alec Baldwin and the family of Halyna Hutchins have reached a settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit surrounding the fatal shooting of Hutchins on the set of “Rust,” according to media reports.
Hutchins, who was working as a cinematographer on the project, died on Oct. 21 when Baldwin discharged a gun being used as a prop on the set of the “Rust” movie set in New Mexico. The bullet struck Hutchins in the chest and hit director Joel Souza, who survived.
Matthew Hutchins, who was married to Halyna Hutchins, will be an executive producer of the movie and receive a portion of the profits, according to a report from CNN.
Production of the movie will resume in January as part of the settlement, according to various media reports.
