Why Did Halyna Hutchins’ Widower Drop His Suit to Become an Executive Producer?
The private deal with Hutchins' estate disclosed on October 5 is crucial to this gamble, but it must still be approved by the court.
Rust Movie Productions (RMP), the film's producers, refused to comment on the arrangement.
The rights to the film, the footage, and any future profits are RMP's exclusive assets.
Rust's backers would have received the revenues first as unsecured creditors if Hutchins refused to settle and the movie went on.
Hutchins's choice to settle may also be related to his involvement in other legal disputes.
Mitchell and the other plaintiffs may still pursue a claim against Baldwin, although his potential responsibility is unclear at this time.
