The Rock changes the way of working on the set

In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about the tragedy that hit Alec Baldwin and the whole set of his new film, with the well-known actor who was trying to get out of a bad moment in his career and his life, with a new project, but which instead ended up running into a real tragedy that led to the death of a colleague on the set.

In one of the scenes that were meant to capture a moment of action from the film, Baldwin inadvertently fired real shots from a firearm that actually had to be loaded with blanks, as is always the case on movie sets, with the gun that was instead it is still loaded with real bullets, which killed one of the filming directors and also wounded another colleague.

Just like the tragedy that led to the death of Brandon Lee, on the set of the film The Crow, in the 90s, this time too there seems to be no real person responsible for the fact, with several inspectors and different managers who should have checked that the 'weapon was loaded with blanks and which instead did not fulfill their work, costing the life of a woman.

At Survivor Series 2021 later this month, WWE will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Rock's debut.

After the terrible tragedy that hit his colleague, even The Rock, a well-known Hollywood actor and WWE wrestler from time to time, wanted to have his say on firearms and their danger, especially on movie sets.

The Rock says no to real guns on sets

In his interview with Variety newspaper, The Rock stated: "I can't speak for everyone, but I can tell you for myself, without any doubts here, every time we make a film and every time we do it from now on with Seven Bucks Production - every single film, every tv show, or whatever we do or produce - we're not going to use real guns for anything.

We will change every single weapon to favor fake weapons and we will take care of all of that. We will not mind the money spent; we don't care how much it will cost. "With clear and decisive words, even the former WWE Champion said no to the use of real weapons in the cinema, which could always lead to very serious problems, as in the case of Baldwin or Brandon Lee.

Speaking to Brandon Davis of Comicbook.com, The Rock stated that he doesn't know if he has another title run left in him. He added that him returning to the ring for another match would have to make sense. "I don't know if I have another title run, considering I'm the People's Champion.

But I don't know if it's another title run. I think possibly, you know, there might be another match down the road. It would have to make sense," said The Rock.
