The Rock’s Seven Bucks Productions to Stop Use of Real Ammunition on Set

Rock made this revelation in an exclusive interview with Variety, following the tragic death of Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust.”

Hollywood actor and famed WWE Pro wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has said that his production company is getting rid of real amunition on set. Johnson who is the owner of Hollywood film production company Seven Bucks Productions revealed this in a recent interview with media outlet Variety.

Perhaps all of Hollywood may start considering yanking live armour from their props, in the wake of a tragic incident on the set of upcoming movie “Rust,” that saw Rock’s fellow Hollywood A-lister Alec Baldwin accidentally kill Ukrainian cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

“First of all, I was heartbroken. We lost a life. My heart goes out to her family and everybody on set. I’ve known Alec, too, for a very long time,” Johnson said.

“I can’t speak for anyone else, but I can tell you, without an absence of clarity here, that any movie that we have moving forward with Seven Bucks Productions — any movie, any television show, or anything we do or produce — we won’t use real guns at all,” he added.

Johnson further revealed that Seven Bucks will now replace live ammunitions with rubber guns.

“We’re going to switch over to rubber guns, and we’re going to take care of it in post. We’re not going to worry about the dollars; we won’t worry about what it costs.

“We’re going to switch over to rubber guns, and we’re going to take care of it in post. We’re not going to worry about the dollars; we won’t worry about what it costs.

“I think the most prudent thing and the smartest thing to do is just pause for a second and really re-examine how you’re going to move forward and how we’re going to work together.

“Any movie we do that Seven Bucks does with any studio, the rule is we’re not going to use real guns. That’s it.”
