Alec Baldwin to star as himself in new movie following dropped Rust shooting charges


After having involuntary manslaughter charges dropped in the aftermath of the tragic Rust shooting, Alec Baldwin is set to star in a new comedy movie, playing a fictionalized version of himself.

In October 2021, during an on-set rehearsal, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and writer-director Joel Souza were accidentally shot by Baldwin, who was holding a gun. Hutchins later passed away from her injuries, resulting in various members of the Rust cast and crew facing multiple criminal charges.

After more than a year of navigating the legal repercussions of the Rust incident, Deadline has reported that Baldwin has landed a role in Hollywood Heist, a comedy caper.

The film, which wrapped production this month, features Baldwin alongside Nick Cannon, Tara Reid, Paul Sloan, Til Schweiger, and Mickey Rourke, as a Hollywood power agent attempting to secure Baldwin’s involvement in a project after its bank account is drained by a thief.

All the while, the agent must contend with famous actors and drug lords in order to keep the project afloat.
