Alec Baldwin is reportedly planning to reprise his role as Rust on the set of the film in October 2021, according to a source. The 64-year-old actor has not appeared in any projects since the killing of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in New Mexico.
According to the source, the program is scheduled to premiere at the Shubert Theater, and it will also star a number of Broadway actors, including John Leguizamo and Tony Shalhoub. Tony-winning director Matthew Warchus is also expected to work on the project.
Yasmina, 63, who wrote Art, also composed the Tony-winning play God Of Carnage, which she won the Best Play award for in 1994, and Matthew received the Best Director award for in 2009. Art first premiered in Paris in 1994, and it appeared on the Great White Way four years later, with a cast that included Alan Alda, Alfred Molina, and Victor Garber.
The shooting on the Rust set in October is still being investigated. Halyna's family has filed a lawsuit against Alec for wrongful death. While the 30 Rock actor has not taken on any roles since the shooting, he has spoken out about his emotions since the incident in his first interview with George Stephanopoulos for ABC News in December.
Alec mourned Halyna's terrible death at another point in the interview, not only reflecting on the tragic accident at which she was killed but also on how close he was to her. "I would go to any lengths to rectify what happened," he said.
