Months after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot dead in the filming of "Rust," the project co-producer says he is "confident" that the film will resume filming and end.

In an interview published Monday by The Hollywood Reporter, Anjul Nigam said he believes they will be able to finish "Rust" as soon as the investigation into the shooting incident is completed.

"Rust" is definitely a terrible tragedy. Hopefully the investigation will be resolved soon and will reveal what happened. "Of course, there will be people who will have negative prospects, but we are sure that we will continue to make quality films," said Nigam.

Hutchins was shot and killed Oct. 21 on the set of the movie "Rust" in New Mexico when a firearm held by Baldwin was thrown as they were rehearsing a scene. The investigation by the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Department is ongoing.

Nigam said they were "confident" they would "be able to finish the film" once the investigation is complete.

Nigam also announced plans for a new film project with Baldwin, called "False Awakenings," in which Baldwin will star. They plan to start production this summer.21Media
