亚历克·鲍德温 is taking legal action for the first time in last year’s fatal on-set shooting incident that resulted in the death of cinematographer 哈莉娜·哈钦斯.

In court docs obtained by PEOPLE, 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 乔尔·苏扎 十月. 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,” the lawsuit reads.

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 lawsuit, 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.

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.
