American actor Dwayne Johnson popularly known as ‘The Rock’, has said he would no longer use real guns on the set of any of his movies.
The former wrestler turned actor made this known in Los Angeles while promoting the world premiere of his upcoming Netflix movie ‘Red Notice’ alongside Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot.
He said to Variety that the films made by his company, Seven Buck Productions, would “not use real guns ever again.” This development is coming after the accidental prop gun shooting, which killed Halyna Hutchins on the movie ‘Rust’ set.

Two weeks ago, the news broke out that Alec Baldwin accidentally shot the cinematographer and director on a movie set after being told the gun was a ‘cold gun’.
