A new lawsuit filed on Wednesday states that Hollywood A-lister actor Alec Baldwin “intentionally” fired a gun toward cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the “Rust” movie set since the script does not require a gun on the scene.
Mamie Mitchell, the script supervisor on set said Baldwin also violated the safety protocol when he used a live bullet in the set.
Mitchell the one who filed the suit said “Alec Baldwin intentionally, without just cause or excuse, cocked and fired and loaded gun even though the upcoming scene to be filmed did not call for the cocking and firing of a firearm.”
She also said every safety protocol designed to ensure safety with a firearm on set was ignored, such as the presence of live ammunition on set, and that “actions that were taken” that day “were against all industry norms.”
Aside from Baldwin, Mitchell also sued Hanna Gutierrez-Reed, who was the armorer on the “Rust” set and the movie production company.
In her suit, Mitchell asked for an unspecified amount for loss of future earnings, special and general damages, attorneys fees, and punitive damages.
