Police in the US state of New Mexico said a weapon used as a prop during the filming of the 19th-century western Rust was unloaded on Thursday.
The 42-year-old woman was taken to hospital but died from her injuries. The man was receiving emergency care.
Detectives are investigating the incident at Bonanza Creek Ranch, a popular filming location.
A union confirmed to Variety magazine that the woman was serving as a cinematographer.
The International Cinematographer’s Guild said her death was “devastating news” and “a terrible loss.”
“According to investigators, it appears that the scene being filmed involved the use of a backup firearm when it was fired,” Sheriff’s spokesman Juan Ríos told the Albuquerque Journal. “Detectives are investigating how and what type of shell was discharged.”
The deputies responded around 2 p.m. filming the movie at Bonanza Creek Ranch after they received 911 calls from a person who was shot on set, Rios said.
Filming for “Rust” was scheduled to continue through early November, according to a press release from the New Mexico Film Office.
The film is about a 13-year-old boy who is forced to fend for himself and his younger brother after the death of his parents in Kansas in the 1880s, according to the Internet Movie Database website. The teenager runs away with his grandfather (played by Baldwin) after the boy is sentenced to hang for the accidental murder of a local rancher.
