Rust’ movie which Halyna Hutchins was filming before Alec Baldwin misfired a prop gun that killed her has a $6m insurance policy

The 'Rust' movie which Halyna Hutchins was filming before Alec Baldwin misfired a prop gun that killed her, has a $6m insurance policy. The certificate of insurance obtained by TMZ was written by Front Row Insurance Brokers and the general liability coverage is limited to $1 million per occurrence. There is also a commercial umbrella policy which is a supplement to the general liability coverage, for an additional $5 million.
