quote:

Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on a set in New Mexico on Thursday, accidentally killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.

Hutchins, 42, was transported by helicopter to University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she died. Souza, 48, was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe, where he was receiving emergency care.

Got the cinematographer, almost got the director. :patriot:

The real fun of living wisely is that you get to be smug about it.



To shoot one member of the production with your prop gun may be regarded as a misfortune; to shoot two looks like carelessness.

really curious how this happened and who hosed up. i assume they're not using real guns, so it might be like how brandon lee died: something got lodged in the barrel and then he shot a blank, which pushed it with enough force to fatally wound him.

what a horrible tragedy. jeeze. somebody hosed up real bad, and i'm not even sure it was alec baldwin. prop master has some explaining to do

By the way, regarding the plot of the movie they were shooting:

Baldwin is a co-producer on the film and plays infamous outlaw Rust, whose 13-year-old grandson is convicted of an accidental murder.

My assumption is he shot once and they were standing close together.

People dying on set after getting shot with blanks seems like a thing that only happens in the distant past. But then again so does making westerns.

Yeah, negligence on the part of the prop master seems the most likely. The only reason I would think otherwise is because Baldwin has a long history of being loving crazy both on and off set.

Yeah agreed. Almost makes it worse in some ways because likely Baldwin is innocent but he will.ne er shake this because of how loving crazy he has been

You can gently caress somebody up with blanks just in general. Debris from the blank, squibs or obstructions of any kind in the barrel, or just plain being too close to somebody.

Edit: Also using old, hot loaded, or incorrect types of blanks. There are pretty hot loaded blanks meant to do things like lob rifle grenades long distances that you REALLY do not want to be out in front of.

Yeah, it's worth noting that the guns that fire blanks are 100% real guns.

Usually there are multiple safety precautions taken, like plexi screens in front of crew and having a set armourer actually making sure the gun is safe before firing. I bet this was a squib load (a bullet lodged in the barrel) like what happened to Brandon Lee, and the storyboard called for an unfortunate take of Baldwin's character shooting directly at the camera.
