Baldwin fired a .45 caliber revolver while rehearsing a scene for the film, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza. Other actors have made calls for guns to no longer be used on movie sets, something Baldwin says he’s extremely interested in.

The Santa Fe County District Attorney is investigating the shooting and says she hasn’t ruled out filing charges in the case.
