rust will be back in the movie “Rust” this week at the Yellowstone Film Ranch in Montana, according to the production company. This is an example of how the movie industry can be back to back with movie filming and production. It’s not the first time this has happened and it won’t be the last. It’s important to remember that in the movie industry, even a small issue can lead to years of imprisonment.
Eighteen months after the tragic incident, filming for the movie “Rust” would likely resume this week at the Yellowstone Film Ranch in Montana, according to the production company. Per Melina Spadone, an attorney for Rust Move Productions, filming was set to restart on April 20. Baldwin also will stay on as the lead actor and co-producer.
The movie’s plot is centered around a 13-year-old boy charged with accidentally killing a local rancher. Sentenced to hang, he goes on the lam with his estranged grandfather, outlaw Harland Rust (Baldwin), to try to escape his fate. The rest of the cast includes Jensen Ackles, Travis Fimmel, Brady Noon, and Frances Fisher.Baldwin previously expressed his excitement for his role in the Western flick. “It wasn’t obviously something I was setting out to do. I just loved the story,” Baldwin shared in a 2020 Hollywood Reporter interview. “I was just looking for something a little more cinematic with a little less talking.”
The actor’s charges may have been dropped but his legal troubles are far from over. He is still facing a lawsuit filed by Halyna Hutchins’ parents and sister in February 2023. The suit cited negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress from Baldwin as well as the movie’s producers and crew members, per CNBC.
