DISTURBING DETAILS

Em um newly released affidavit for a search warrant of the set, Russell tells how director Joel Souza was covered in blood as Hutchins screamed that shecouldn’t feel her legsafter the fatal shot was fired.

When asked about how Baldwin handled the firearm, Russell told Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department Detective Joel Cano: “Alec had been very careful, and brought up an instance when a scene was being filmed earlier.

Reid said Alec had made sure it was safe and that a child wasn’t near him when they were discharging a firearm during that scene.”

The cameraman also revealed Baldwin had taken the gun out of its holster and the shooting was NOT caught on film.

“He said Alec was trying to explain how he was going to draw out the firearm and where his arm would be at when the firearm was pulled from the holster,” Cano recounted Russell’s words.

“Reid was not sure why the firearm was discharged and just remembered the loud bang from the firearm.”

Russell had previously posted on Instagram that Hutchins was the one who brought him on to work on the film.

Alongside a picture with Hutchins, ele escreveu: “Always wanted to shoot a Western! Thank you @halynahutchins for bringing me on Rust.

Cano also questioned Souza, who revealed that Baldwinsitting in a pew in a church building setting, and he was practicing a cross drawwhen the fatal shot went off.

Joel said he was looking over the shoulder of Halyna, when he heard what sounded like a whip and then loud pop.

“Joel also said Halyna began to stumble backwards and she was assisted to the ground.

“Joel explained that he was bleeding from his shoulder and he could see blood on Halyna.”

UP IN ARMS

Both Russell and Hutchins were also members of IATSE, or the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, of which several people reportedly walked off the Rust set in protest ofpoor gun safetyjust hours before the shots were fired.

In text messages obtained by the New York Post, one Rust employee wrote: “Last night we wrote resignation letters.

We cited everything from lack of payment for three weeks, taking our hotels away despite asking for them in our deals, lack of COVID safety (and on) top of that, poor gun safety!

Poor on set safety, period! We wrote about this exact issue last night and walked this morning because of it!”

An onset source also disse ao The Sun they felt movie makers werecutting corners to save a buck.

I wouldn’t go back to the set if I was asked, it’s cursed.

The walkout happened due to frustration from camera operators and their assistants over issues like long hours and pay, according to a number of outlets.

Someone from the producer staff ordered union members to leave the set and said if they didn’t leave, the producers would call security and they would be removed.

An email from IATSE Local 44, obtained by Indie Wire, called the incident anaccidental weapons discharge.

Leu: “A live single round was accidentally fired on set by the principal actor, hitting both the Director of Photography, Local 600 member Halyna Hutchins, and Director Joel Souza.

Local 44 has confirmed that the Props, Set Decoration, Special Effects, and Construction Departments were staffed by New Mexico crew members.

There were no Local 44 members on the call sheet.
