In a the trailer for an interview with Extra, Hilaria takes a deep breath before diving into how the family feels about the tragedy.

Her husband Alec had fired a prop gun in 2021 that contained live rounds, though Alec maintains he did not know there were live rounds in the prop gun at the time. The rounds killed Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza.
Alec has recently reached an undisclosed settlement with Hutchins’ widow, Matthew Hutchins, over a wrongful death lawsuit. The late cinematographer’s husband will now be an executive producer on the film.
“I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame (to the producers or Mr. Baldwin),” he communicated through a statement.
“All of us believe Halyna’s death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna’s final work.”
However, Alec Baldwin has in turn filed a lawsuit against crew members on the set of Rust, alleging “wrongdoing”.
Earlier this month, the 64-year-old actor filed a cross-complaint against the production’s armourer Hannah Gutierrez Reed, assistant director David Halls, armourer assistant Seth Kenney, the prop weapon and ammunition supply store company Kenney owns, and prop master Sarah Zachry.
“More than anyone else on that set, Baldwin has been wrongfully viewed as the perpetrator of this tragedy. By these Cross-Claims, Baldwin seeks to clear his name and hold Cross-Defendants accountable for their misconduct,” the cross-complaint reads.
