Report security breaches on the Rust film set “on track” for release

A report into possible workplace safety violations on the film set where cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed is said to be released on Thursday.

The report, prepared by the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED), is scheduled to be released six months after the Santa Fe incident.

Ms Hutchins was killed on the film’s set in October last year after a prop gun Alec Baldwin was holding was fired.

“We are on track to release the report by the April 21 deadline,” Matthew Maeza, a spokesman for NMED, told US media outlet Deadline.

“I currently have no details on the report’s findings to share.”

Lawyers said Baldwin pointed the prop gun at Ms Hutchins during preparations for filming a scene when she discharged, killing the cameraman and wounding the western’s director Joel Souza.

The actor has said he pointed the gun at Ms Hutchins on her instructions and fired it without pulling the trigger.

He is currently fighting a number of lawsuits arising from the incident, including those of script director Mamie Mitchell, head of lighting Serge Svetnoy and Ms Hutchins’ family.

The incident also prompted calls from politicians for increased government-sponsored firearms training.

Earlier this year, New Mexico Senator Cliff Pirtle introduced a bill that would require all acting and film production employees in the state that has firearms to take a safety course designed primarily for hunters.
