The widower of late cinematographer Halyna Hutchins will make his first public appearance this week at WrapWomen’s fourth annual Power Women Summit.
Matt Hutchins will appear on stage at the event Wednesday, which is taking place at the London West Hollywood in Beverly Hills, to acknowledge the tribute video dedicated to her work, Page Six is exclusively told.
American Film Institute Dean Susan Ruskin will also deliver comments about the late “Rust” DP and already has established a scholarship in Hutchins’ name for a female cinematographer.
WrapWomen will also be announcing a donation in her honor.
Celebrities expected to attend include Sarah Paulson, Alexis Ren, Christine Chiu, Emily Hampshire, Tracy Tutor and more.
Hutchins was accidentally shot and killed by Alec Baldwin while on the New Mexico set of “Rust” in October. She was 42.
No charges have been filed against 63-year-old Baldwin, but he’s hired attorney Aaron S. Dyer of New York-based law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman to represent him in the two lawsuits he’s facing by script supervisor Mamie Mitchell and gaffer Serge Svetnoy.
Mitchell’s lawsuit, filed in November, claims Baldwin disregarded the film’s gun safety procedures and fired the revolver right at Hutchins, killing her and injuring director Joel Souza. Mitchell is suing for an unspecified amount for loss of future earnings, special and general damages, attorneys fees and punitive damages.
Svetnoy filed his lawsuit against Baldwin about a week prior to Mitchell, claiming he suffered emotional distress after nearly being hit by the bullet that killed Hutchins. He also claimed Baldwin was negligent and should have checked the gun before pulling the trigger.
