Speaking at a film festival in Colorado, Alec Baldwin has implied that the family of Halyna Hutchins and others suing him and other movie execs over last year’s accident on the set of his movie Rust are going after “deep pockets”. The cinematographer was fatally hit with a live round from a revolver Baldwin was rehearsing with. The film’s director Joel Souza was also hit and he survived. Baldwin said “the people who have money are not negligent” when it comes to the incident, but he says the attitude of those suing is “we’re not gonna let that stop us from doing what we need to do in terms of litigation.” Last month, Hutchins’ husband Matthew said he was disappointed that Baldwin had painted himself as a victim and was trying to “shift responsibility to others” for the death of his wife. He’s said he’s frustrated Baldwin has not accepted some responsibility for her death, adding “there were a number of industry standards that were not practiced, and there’s multiple responsible parties.” The police investigation is continuing.
