Alec Baldwin and Rust producers will CONTINUE filming in January 2023

Alec Baldwin has been pictured leaving his New York City apartment after he announced filming for Rust will continue following a deal between him and slain cinematographer Halyna Hutchins' husband.

The actor was spotted getting into a car with his kids as wife Hilaria watched on following the bombshell update on Wednesday morning.

Earlier he revealed the movie will continue to be made from January following the confidential civil settlement between him and Matthew Hutchins.

He said on his Instagram page the move was part of a 'specific desire to do what is best for Halyna's son' after she was shot dead during filming in New Mexico last year.

Despite the announcement, the local DA's office warned the deal will not impact its criminal investigation into the death and added: 'No one is above the law'.

Halyna was shot on the set of the film in October 2021 in Bonanza Creek Ranch, Santa Fe.

Her family filed a wrongful death lawsuit in February, which has now been dropped.

Baldwin has said he did not pull the trigger and claims the blame lies with the stunt handlers and prop managers who should have ensured the gun did not have live bullets.
Santa Fe Sheriff's Office has not charged anyone.

Baldwin wrote on social media: 'Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained the specific desire to do what is best for Halyna's son.

'We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation.'

Matthew Hutchins will serve as executive producer during the revival of the western as he, the producers and Baldwin agreed his wife's death was a 'terrible accident.'

The widower added: 'We have reached a settlement, subject to court approval, for our wrongful death case against the producers of Rust, including Alec Baldwin and Rust Movie Productions, LLC.

'As part of that settlement, our case will be dismissed. The filming of Rust, which I will now executive produce, will resume with all the original principal players on board in January 2023.'

He continued: 'I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame (to the producers or Mr.

Baldwin). All of us believe Halyna's death was a terrible accident. 

'I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna's final work.'

Rust's director Joel Souza paid tribute to Hutchins' talent and creativity - and said the decision to continue to work on the film for her legacy is 'bittersweet.'

Souza added: 'My every effort on this film will be devoted to honoring Halyna's legacy and making her proud. It is a privilege to see this through on her behalf.' 

He said he wished he'd worked with the cinematographer under different circumstances, but continuing the project will help with his own healing process. 

Rust Movie Productions, LLC, through its attorney, Melina Spadone, said: 'We are pleased the parties came together to resolve this matter, which, subject to court approval, marks an important step forward in celebrating Halyna's life and honoring her work.'

Filming will begin just 15 months after the cinematographer was shot on set.  

Following the announcement of the civil settlement, the DA's office said: 'The proposed settlement announced today in Matthew Hutchins' wrongful death case against Rust movie producers, including Alec Baldwin, in the death of Halyna Hutchins will have no impact on District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altweis' ongoing investigation or her ultimate decision whether to file criminal charges in the case.'

 'While civil suits are settled privately and often involve financial awards, criminal cases deal only in facts. 

'If the facts and evidence warrant criminal charges under New Mexico law then charges will be brought.

No one is above the law.'
