Although the results of the investigation remain to be known, everything indicates that what happened on the set of Rust it was not the responsibility of Alec Baldwin it was an accident. Last night it was reported that the director of photography Halyna Hutchins had died after the actor and producer operated a poorly loaded prop gun and fatally wounded her in the abdomen. Who was also injured was the director, Joel Souza, but it was reported that he is already out of danger.
The situation has great similarities with what happened with Brandon Lee on the set of The Raven, at the beginning of the 90’s. That in almost twenty years, the industry has not changed its policy regarding props makes it clear that what happened to Alec Baldwin it was completely avoidable. For this reason, from one of the most important fictions of Amazon Prime Video they took action on the matter.
Eric Kripke, showrunner from The Boys, sent a message of support to the family of Halyna, a Jensen Ackles (one of the actors involved with whom he worked many times) and the rest of the team involved. “Having someone injured or dead on my set is my worst nightmare”, wrote in his account Twitter, in a post that exceeded 6 thousand likes.
“Very sorry”, assured Kripke, who also promised to change the way his productions are shot as The Boys. “In his memory, a plain and simple promise: no more blank bullet weapons in my sets. We will use visual effects flashes. Who’s with me?”, wrote.
The future of The Boys
The filming of the third season of The Boys it was delayed due to the pandemic, but ended last September and is in post-production stages. Still without a confirmed release date, it is most likely that it will return only in 2022. If the release dates of previous installments are respected, we will have to wait practically for the second semester.
Little is known about the plot of the series, beyond the appearance of Soldier Boy (the first of the superheroes to be created). In this sense, one of the biggest doubts is knowing what will happen to Stormfront, since in an interview with The Wrap, Kripke confirmed that she was not dead. About the series in general, the showrunner assured: “The rough idea in my head is five seasons in total.”.
