New lawsuit against Alec Baldwin alleges the film script didn't call for him to fire gun



A new lawsuit against Hollywood actor, Alec Baldwin alleges that the film script did not require him to fire a gun when he fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.


Script supervisor Mamie Mitchell (pictured bottom left)- who called police after the shooting on the New Mexico film set has filed the suit.


Her lawyer accused the actor of "playing Russian roulette" when he fired the gun without checking it.







Authorities are still investigating the 21 October shooting that took place on the set of the Western film Rust. No criminal charges have been brought against anyone.


Mitchell's lawsuit claims that the script called for three tight camera shots - one of Baldwin's eyes, another of a bloodstain on his shoulder and a third of his torso "as he reached his hand down to the holster and removed the gun".


"There was nothing in the script about the gun being discharged by defendant Baldwin or by any other person," it says.


In a news conference on Wednesday, November 17, her lawyer Gloria Allred described the behaviour of Baldwin and the film's producers as "reckless", as she accused them of failing to follow safety protocols.Latest Post
