Could Lawsuits be Filed at Production Companies Tied to Alec Baldwin Set Shooting?

Posted on 10/24/2021

In August 2017, Alec Baldwin’s production company, El Dorado Pictures, signed a first-look deal with ABC Studios, which is owned by the Walt Disney Company. El Dorado Pictures develops scripted and unscripted projects under the ABC Studios banner. “Rust” is an upcoming American Western film written and directed by Joel Souza. It stars Alec Baldwin (Oscar nominee and 30 Rock star), Travis Fimmel, Brady Noon, Frances Fisher, and Jensen Ackles.

Various media sites are doing a blitz to deflect blame off of Hollywood actor and producer Alec Baldwin who shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. Alec Baldwin could face criminal charges over the killing of Halyna Hutchins. The death occurred on October 21, 2021, at the Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The gun was fired during the movie set of “Rust”. According to a search warrant, a crew member gave the prop gun from a cart and was unaware it was loaded with live rounds before handing it to Alec Baldwin.

Stories out of the woodwork are blaming or at least highlighting others such as armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed (age 24) and Rust assistant director Dave Halls.

CAA Media Finance (Creative Artists Agency) was handling the domestic rights and Santa Monica-based BondIt Media Capital on board for financing of the movie. BondIt Media Capital is backed by TSX-listed Accord Financial.
