Alec Baldwin is taking legal action for the first time in last year’s fatal Ruggine on-set shooting incident that resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

In atti giudiziari ottenuti da PERSONE, the Academy Award nominee, 64, “seeks to clear his nameafter he was rehearsing with the prop gun as it misfired, killing Hutchins and wounding writer-director Joel Souza ad ottobre. 21, 2021 in Santa Fe, N.M.

More than anyone else on that set, Baldwin has been wrongfully viewed as the perpetrator of this tragedy,” si legge nella causa.

The cross-complaint, which was filed Friday in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, names some of the same people accused of negligence in script supervisor Mamie Mitchell’s 2021 causa, which also previously listed Baldwin, the production company and others involved.

Should Mitchell be victorious with her lawsuit, Baldwin is seeking a share of those damages for himself, according to his court documents.

L'attore, who stars in the western in addition to producing, lists armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed, assistente direttore David Halls, prop master Sarah Zachry and armorer assistant Seth Kenney in the cross-complaint, as well as Kenney’s prop weapon and ammunition supply store company.

Baldwin’s attorneys Luke Nikas and Robert M. Schwartz wrote that the defendantsowed a duty to those on set, including Baldwin, to keep the set safe. Everyone on set, including Baldwin, expected and trusted them to do so.

The lawsuit reads: “This tragedy occurred on a movie set — not a gun range, not a battlefield, not a location where even a remote possibility should exist that a gun would contain live ammunition. It occurred under the supervision of a professional armorer, Gutierrez-Reed, and the First Assistant Director, Halls, who were hired to protect the actors and crew on set.

This tragedy happened because live bullets were delivered to the set and loaded into the gun, Gutierrez-Reed failed to check the bullets or the gun carefully, Halls failed to check the gun carefully and yet announced the gun was safe before handing it to Baldwin, and Zachry failed to disclose that Gutierrez-Reed had been acting recklessly off set and was a safety risk to those around her,” the filing alleges.

Baldwin’s cross-complaint seekscompensatory, nominal, statutory, and punitive damagesthrough jury trial.

Santa Fe County District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwie said in September that Baldwin potrebbe incorrere in accuse penali in the fatal shooting. Inoltre, he and the film’s producers have faced several lawsuits, including one filed by Hutchins’ famiglia for wrongful death, quale was settled lo scorso mese.

Halyna’s widower Matthew Hutchins, with whom she shares son Andros, will now be an executive producer on Ruggine when it resumes filming a gennaio.
