Alec Baldwin finishes filming 'Rust,' says ‘nothing less than a miracle’
Alec Baldwin also mentioned the tragic death of 'Rust' cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in his post
Hollywood star Alec Baldwin marked the end of filming on his film Rust on Monday.
Baldwin, 65, turned to Instagram to commemorate the end of shooting the project, which he has been making since October of 2021 and also mentioned the tragedy attached to the project which landed him in great legal trouble.
The Oscar-nominated actor posted a picture of his Rust co-stars Frances Fisher, 71, and Patrick Scott McDermott, 14, from the set as filming wrapped up in Montana.
Baldwin captioned, “last day of filming RUST in Montana,' Baldwin - who made headlines Monday for his actions at a recent gala - captioned the shot. 'Sorry that I did not get to work with this living legend, the great @francesfisher. Patrick, I envy you.”
The 30 Rock actor then went on to remember the tragic death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who died after Baldwin discharged a prop gun on the film set.
Baldwin shared, “it’s been a long and difficult road' making the motion picture, about a year-and-a-half after the fatal shooting, 'but we reach the end of the trail today.”
Baldwin also congratulated the film's director Joel Souza, who was also shot in the incident and sustained injuries.
He mentioned Bianca Cline, who replaced Hutchins at cinematographer as well as “the entire cast and crew.”
The actor concluded the statement, “nothing less than a miracle.”
Alec Baldwin announced the shooting wrap on Rust earlier this month. “Last day on the set of RUST with this guy. A very talented actor and lovely young man with a bright future ahead. My love to you, @patrickscottmcdermott,” he wrote.
