Alec Baldwin's movie, 'Rust," will resume filming at a new studio in Montana.
Yellowstone Film Ranch made the announcement today.
The film has been on hiatus since October of 2021 after Baldwin shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set.
Charges against Baldwin were recently downgraded. Prosecutors removed what's known as a firearm enhancement charge that calls for longer prison sentences in such crimes.
Baldwin is charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter. It's has a possible sentence of 18 months in prison. He has contended the shooting was accidental, and the fault of somebody else.
It has not yet been revealed as to how a loaded gun made it onto the set when safety professionals work for films to make sure just such mistakes don't happen.
