Alec Baldwin, who starred in 'Rust,' will direct the film.
Despite the fact that police had stated they would prosecute the actor for the death of the film's cinematographer, a lawyer for the production stated on Monday that 'Rust' would be shot in the main role.
Joel Souza, who was injured in the event in October 2021, will take over as the film's director, with Alec Baldwin continuing to play Harland Rust's grandpa, according to Melina Spadone.
Baldwin was practising with a pistol when it sprang out accidentally, killing Hutchins and wounding Souza.
Mary Carmack-Altwies, a Santa Fe district attorney, announced on Thursday that she will charge Baldwin and Hannah Gutierrez-Reed with involuntary manslaughter in the wake of the Hutchins' death.
In October, the Hutchins family sued Baldwin for wrongful death. In accordance with the terms of the contract, Hutchins will join the "Rust" production crew this month, and filming will resume shortly thereafter.
Baldwin has denied any involvement in the shooting, claiming that the persons responsible for the weapons had the responsibility to ensure their safety.
The origin of the live bullets is still unknown, despite an investigation by the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office.
