Alec Baldwin says Rust set was not ‘a dangerous workplace’: ‘Working morale was high’.

Actor Alec Baldwin on Thursday shared a letter on his Instagram account by members of the Rust crew in defense of the film production in which a cinematographer was killed by a live bullet.

In the open letter, cast and crew members pushed back against the portrayal by some other crew of Rust as an unsafe production, and described instead a set where morale was high and working conditions fair.

“The descriptions of Rust as a chaotic, dangerous, and exploitative workplace are false and distract from what matters the most: the memory of Halyna Hutchins, and the need to find modern alternatives to outdated industry firearm and safety practices,” read the letter shared by Baldwin and signed by 25 cast and crew members.
