Alec Baldwin resumed filming of his movie Rust at a new location in Montana on Thursday, April 20.

Filming resumed at the Yellowstone Film Ranch in Montana the same day New Mexico prosecutors dropped manslaughter charges against Baldwin.

Prosecutors filed a notice to drop all charges against the father of 8, his attorney, Luke Nikas, told CNN.

Baldwin (right) was arrested in January on involuntary manslaughter charges for fatally shooting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins (left) on the New Mexico movie set on Oct. 21, 2021. He pleaded not guilty.

Halyna’s widower Matt Hutchins and their nine-year-old son filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Baldwin last year.

In 2022 Matt Hutchins announced a proposed out-of-court settlement that included working as an executive producer on the Rust film.

Baldwin is also simultaneously filming a documentary on Halyna’s life with Matt Hutchins as executive producer.

Baldwin, 65, recently asked a judge to toss a “misguided” lawsuit filed by Halyna’s parents and sister. Famed attorney Gloria Allred is representing Halyna’s parents and sister.

In court documents, obtained by The New York Post, Baldwin argued that the lawsuit should be dismissed because Halyna’s parents and sister had been distant from her in the years leading up to her death.

“The loss of a daughter and sister is undoubtedly painful in any circumstance. Yet Plaintiffs – who had been distanced from Halyna physically, financially, and emotionally for years before her death – have no viable cause of action against Defendants,” Baldwin said, adding: “This action is especially misguided.”

Prosecutors in Santa Fe are pursuing involuntary manslaughter charges against Rust weapons supervisor Hannah Gutierrez-Reed who allegedly loaded the pistol with live rounds. She will plead not guilty at a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 3.
