Alec Baldwin was spotted on the set of Rust on Friday in exclusive photos provided to the Post showing the film's new cinematographer, Bianca Kline, in action for the first time.
The gray-bearded actor, 65, appeared disfigured and bloodied in a Harland Rust costume while filming the indie western in Montana.
In one photo, Baldwin is casually among his co-stars, but he's wearing a tattered blue shirt, braces, gray pants, and dusty brown boots. When filming finished, a red blanket was wrapped around his shoulders.
In other photos, the cameras appear to roll as Baldwin is led away by two men wearing cowboy hats, boots and heavy trench coats.
Baldwin stands with his head through a loop of rope on a wooden platform looking out at the audience.
Cline was also discovered 18 months after the last operator, Galina Hutchins, 42, was fatally shot.
Production was halted in October 2021 after Baldwin was seen holding a dummy gun that accidentally went off and killed Hutchins with a real bullet.
Hutchins' widow has now joined the film as an executive producer.
Production resumed after prosecutors dropped the charges against Baldwin last week.
"We are pleased with the decision to drop Alec Baldwin's case and ask for a proper investigation into the events and circumstances of this tragic incident," his attorneys Luke Nikos and Alex Spiro told The Post.
The actor pleaded not guilty in court, denying any wrongdoing in Hutchins' murder and injuring director Joel Souza.
Meanwhile, tank officer Hannah Gutierrez-Reid was charged with manslaughter.
Last month, Chief Deputy David Halls was sentenced to six months of unsupervised probation after pleading not to plead negligent/dangerous use of a weapon.
Prosecutors have warned that the charges against Baldwin could be transferred.
Special Counsel Kerry Morrissey and Jason Lewis argued that charges against the Rust star were dropped "Mr does not absolve Baldwin of criminal liability".
"Our additional investigation is ongoing," the New Mexico attorney's office said in a statement.
As production begins, all eyes are on the Yellowstone Film Ranch.
A production company has reportedly been fined $100,000 after a "rusty" set was shipped from New Mexico to Montana following a "major" security breach.
On set last week, Baldwin was photographed with a gun strapped to his back during filming, presumably for one scene.
The New York Times reported that after Hutchin's death, only realistic replicas of the weapon would be available for use in the "rusty" sets.
"I've said it and I'll keep saying it: there are no weapons on the set," Gerard DiNardi, assistant director of the film, assured the crew. "There is no fire. There are many facsimiles of weapons, from rubber to replicas.
Andrew Warth, the film's new gunsmith, whose credits include Dallas Buyers Club and Duel, told the Times he "doesn't want questions about the gun's origin."
In return, Cline worked on Netflix's Murder Among the Mormons and the Academy Award-nominated Marcel in the Shoebox.
