Maximum fine handed to Rust film for major safety failures

The film production company behind Rust is being ordered to pay the maximum fine over the fatal shooting by a prop gun involving actor Alec Baldwin

New Mexico’s Environment Department says Rust Movie Productions must pay close to 137,000 dollars for failing to follow safety guidelines.

It released a scathing report of safety failures in violation of standard industry protocols.

The department says that production managers took limited or no action to address two misfires onset prior to the fatal shooting.

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed in October last year when a gun Alec Baldwin was holding fired and shot her.

The actor, who was also a producer on the film, has previously said he did not pull the trigger and has no idea how a live bullet came to be on the set.

Also documented in the occupational safety report were gun safety complaints made by crew members that were ignored.

The company said it disagreed with the findings and would appeal.
