Actor Dwayne Johnson says he will 'not use real guns ever again' after the fatal shooting incident involving Alec Baldwin on the set of 'Rust'

Hollywood action star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson said on Wednesday, November 3 he would not use real guns in his movies anymore after a fatal shooting incident involving actor Alec Baldwin on a film set in New Mexico last month.

Johnson, who was in Los Angeles attending the world premiere of his new Netflix blockbuster Red Notice with co-stars Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, said films made by his company, Seven Buck Productions, would “not use real guns ever again.”

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed on October 21 on the set of Rust when a gun Baldwin was holding released a live bullet, police said. Baldwin had been told that the gun was “cold,” an industry term meaning it was safe to use.

The incident has reignited concern about the use of prop guns like the weapon Baldwin discharged. – Rappler.com
