TAOS, The New Mexico District Attorney said yesterday that he could face criminal charges in the case of the fatal shooting death of a photographer by several gunmen on the set of the movie Alex Baldwin Rust.
Mary Carmack-Altweis said in a statement that she has not made any decisions on the allegations but that everyone involved in the handling and use of firearms on the set has a responsibility to act in a way that protects the safety of others. ”
Once the investigation is complete, “some individuals may be criminally guilty of their actions and/or inaction on the set of the rust,” it added.
Cormac-Altwiss gave no indication as to when the investigation would end.
Baldwin made the remarks following a television interview Thursday with a gunman who killed cinematographer Halina Hutchins and director Joel Sousa with live ammunition during a rehearsal at a farm near Santa Fe in October.
Baldwin said in an interview that he did not believe he was responsible for Hutchins’ death and did not think he would be charged with a criminal offense. A crew member told the actor the gun was safe.
“I felt that someone was responsible for what happened, but I knew it was not me. If I had been responsible, I would have killed myself, and I do not take it lightly, ”Baldwin told ABC Television’s George Stefanopoulos in his first public comment on the crash.
“People I know have told me … I’m very unlikely to be charged with any criminal offense,” Baldwin told investigators.
As an actor, Baldwin said he was not responsible for inspecting the gun or what was in it. He said he did not pull the trigger but the revolver fired when he pointed the gun while practicing shooting.
“I dropped the gun hammer and it exploded,” he said in an interview Thursday.
Authorities in Santa Fe focused on how the live bullets found their way into the set.
Hannah Guterres, a lawyer for the gun manufacturer in charge of the guns, said Assistant Director Dave Halls had inspected the gun before handing it to Baldwin, claiming it was “cold” or safe.
Spielberg’s new ‘West Side Story’ Race, at the heart of politics
Paris, For Steven Spielberg, obsessed with the West Side story and its legendary soundtrack, the excitement can handle when rehearsals begin for his own version.
“I jumped out of my chair, singing with the key and dancing like I had three left feet,” he told a press conference this week.
“It’s the happiest family relationship I’ve had since ET.”
Tony and Maria’s tragic love story – set against racist allegations of gang rivalry in New York – since it first appeared on Broadway in 1957 and four years later as an American cultural milestone.
Spielberg’s stunning US $ 100- million (RM422.7 million) remake, which will be released globally next week, is a tribute act that seeks to highlight the political messages at the heart of the story.
The 74-year-old director said the gangs – Puerto Rican Sharks and White Jets – were “really fighting about race.”
“But the area they claim to be fighting for is in the shadow of a devastating ball,” he said, adding that New York’s working-class areas were bulldozed at the time for large-scale development projects.
Since its first appearance on Broadway, some Puerto Rican community has taken issue with their portrayal in the West Side Story.
Some changes to the modern remake are inevitable – none of the Latino parts are ascertained by white actors.
But screenwriter Tony Kushner defended the original, saying he was “incredibly radical” at the time.
“I firmly believe that the (Broadway Show and the 1961 film) represents tremendous progress in terms of representation,” Kushner said, “by no means perfect.”
Spielberg refused to subtitle “respectfully” for the Spanish parts of the conversation.
“The language should co-exist with English,” he said.
The band did not intend to move the action to the present day – because Stephen Sonheim, who died at the age of 91 last month and is closely involved in the production, was written in the language of 1950s youth.
“There’s no date about the score,” Kushner said. “But it would feel odd to move those songs to 2021.”
Actress Rita Moreno, who admits that “it’s more than political and original,” is a person with a direct link to both.
Moreno became the first Latin American actress to win an Oscar for her role in the first film version (one of 10 Academy Awards).
Now 89 years old, this time Spielberg is brought in to play the role of Doc’s widow (one of the few changes to the story since this part didn’t exist in previous versions).
She acknowledged that it was mentally challenging.
“I’m not going to say I’m not jealous – it’s a bloody lie,” he said. “I’m young again and I want to do it again. But I’ve got this beautifully written part. I love myself in this film.”
He added that filming a scene with Anita was “creepy.”
“I kept looking at her and had a hard time getting into the scene. It was very strange.”
CGI sweat removal
Filmed on the streets of New York before the Kovid-19 epidemic, Spielberg was keen to avoid more digital work.
He was helped by the fact that “the city of 70 years ago still exists in some provinces.”
But air conditioning units, satellite dishes, and sweat removal needed some digital effects – because they shot a large number of “America” amidst the heatwave in Harlem.
“The kids were working so hard, they were sweating through the costumes,” Spielberg said.
“Through the magic of digital technology … we’ve sweat a lot in post-production.”
