The showrunner of “The Boys” says he’ll never use firearm blanks again after a cinematographer was killed on the set of an Alec Baldwin movie on Thursday.
“In her memory, a simple, easy pledge: no more guns with blanks on any of my sets ever,” Eric Kripke, a producer of the hit Amazon series “The Boys,” said on Twitter. “We’ll use VFX muzzle flashes. Who’s with me?”
Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died after being shot and killed when Baldwin discharged a prop firearm on the set of the film “Rust” in New Mexico.
“Someone hurt or killed on my set is my worst nightmare. Sending love to Halyna Hutchins’ family,” Kripke wrote. “I’m so sorry.”
