The agreement ends the civil lawsuit brought by the family of Halyna Hutchins against Alec Baldwin.

The amount of this negotiated agreement, which must then be validated by a judge, was not disclosed.

Filming in January 2023

“I have no desire to launch recriminations or to point out culprits”, commented the husband of the director of photography, Matthew Hutchins, quoted in the press release of the production of the film.

“We are all convinced that Halyna's death resulted from a terrible accident.

“Filming should resume in January 2023, “with all the main protagonists”, he indicates, specifying that he will be the executive producer.

On October 21, 2021, the filming of this western on a ranch in Santa Fe (New Mexico) had turned tragic when the actor had activated a weapon supposed to contain only blank bullets but whose very real projectile had fatally injured Halyna Hutchins, 42 years old.

The shooting also injured the director of the film, Joel Souza, who welcomed Wednesday the upcoming resumption of filming.

“While it's obviously bittersweet, I'm glad that together we're now finishing what Halyna and I started.

All my efforts on this film will be dedicated to honoring Halyna's memory,” he explained, quoted in the production press release.
