For example, director Craig Zobel ("Mare of Easttown") says that there is no longer any reason because it is possible to use visual effects when shots are to be fired.

- It certainly looks, but who cares?

It is an unnecessary risk to take, he says in a comment.

He is supported by "Knives out" director Rian Johnson and TV director Megan Griffiths ("Room 104", "Animal Kingdom").

The shot was fired by actor Alec Baldwin, who first received the information that it would be harmless.

The film's director Joel Souza was injured at the same time, but he has had to leave the hospital after treatment.
