This is the epilogue of a sad story. Eighteen months after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died on the set of Rust, accidentally killed by Alec Baldwin's prop revolver, filming has been completed. Production resumed after the trial, in which charges were dropped against the Beetlejuice actor.

Halyna Hutchins' widower, Matthew Hutchins, is now executive producer, under a deal he made with the production as part of the lawsuit. Joel Souza, also injured during the tragedy, has resumed his place behind the camera. He and Alec Baldwin had designed the plot for this project with four hands.

A plot set against the backdrop of a western

Rust features Alec Baldwin (also producer of the film), an infamous outlaw, who comes out of his hideout to prevent his 13-year-old grandson from being hanged for murder.

To mark the final day of filming, Alec Baldwin posted a photo with young actor Patrick Scott McDermott. "Last day on the set of RUST with this young man. A very talented actor and a charming young man who has a bright future ahead of him," he added in commentary. The film, which will try to find a buyer on the Cannes film market, will be sold by Goodfellas (formerly Wild Bunch International), according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Cannes Film Festival starts today.
