Alec Baldwin brise le silence après un tournage sur le plateau
Alec Baldwin says he is in touch with the family of Halyna Hutchins, the director of photography who was killed on the set of the movie Rust on Thursday

Alec Baldwin has said his “heart is broken” after he fired a prop gun on the set of his movie Rust, killing a crewmember and wounding the director.

“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” the actor wrote on Twitter.

“I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

The Twitter statement marked Baldwin’s first public comments since authorities confirmed on Thursday that it was he who “discharged” the prop gun that killed his film’s director of photography, 42-Age Halyna Hutchins, and injured its director Joel Souza on set in New Mexico.

Baldwin was filming a forthcoming Western Rouiller à Bonanza Creek Ranch lorsque la tragédie s'est produite.

The Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department issued a statement following the incident confirming that Mr Souza, the film’s director, was undergoing treatment at Christus St Vincent’s hospital. Le cinéaste de 48 ans serait en soins d'urgence.

Hutchins was transported, par hélicoptère, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel.

Police added that the investigation remains “open and active” and that “no charges have been filed in regard to the incident” so far.

« Des témoins continuent d’être interrogés par des détectives. »

IATSE Local 44, a union representing propmasters in the Los Angeles area, addressed the shooting in an email to members on Friday morning and said the prop gun fired by Baldwin contained “a live single round,” rather than a blank.

The organisation said no members of Local 44 were listed on the Rust call sheet, including the film’s propmaster, who has yet to be named publicly.

The Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department did not immediately return The Independent’s request for confirmation of the details in the Local 44 e-mail, which was first reported by IndieWire.

A spokesperson for Baldwin previously said the accident involved “the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.”

Hutchin’s death was confirmed by the International Cinematographers Guild, Local 600. Dans une déclaration à Variété, guild president John Lindley and executive director Rebecca Rhine said: « Nous avons reçu la nouvelle dévastatrice ce soir, qu'un de nos membres, Halyna Hutchins, le directeur de la photographie sur une production intitulée Rouiller au Nouveau-Mexique est décédé des suites de blessures subies sur le tournage.

"C'est une perte terrible, et nous pleurons le décès d'un membre de la famille de notre guilde.

Un institut du cinéma américain (AFI) diplômé, Hutchins a travaillé sur plusieurs courts métrages ainsi que sur des longs métrages Ennemi juré avec Joe Manganiello. Elle a été nommée « étoile montante » par cinéaste américain revue dans 2019.
