Alec Baldwin‘s character in “Rust” appears to meet an extremely morbid fate, caught on the wrong end of a hanging in a series of pics from the newly-resumed set.
Baldwin and co. were in Montana shooting the independent western flick Thursday — specifically a scene where Baldwin’s brought to a noose, and it’s put around his head. Baldwin’s character also has what appears to be a bullet wound to his stomach.
Some of the movie’s plot has been out there for a while — like how Baldwin’s playing an aging outlaw that rescues his grandson from death. Not much else has been released, but obviously these new images could be a major spoiler.
As you know, the hanging comes just weeks after all charges were dropped against Baldwin in the shooting death of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins … which has now seemingly put the blame squarely on armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed.
Production moved out from New Mexico to Montana to finish up, in another set of photos from the set, Baldwin’s character can be seen handling a rifle.
