“Rust” screenplay supervisor Mamie Mitchell says the scene in which actor and producer Alec Baldwin killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October did not include a gun being fired. She filed a lawsuit against Baldwin and other members of the film’s production. The case is currently under investigation by the US State Police of New Mexico and no criminal charges have yet been laid.

According to the BBC, in the suit Mitchell quotes that the script provided for three camera shots – one of Baldwin’s eyes, another of a bloodstain on his shoulder and a third of his chest “as he put his hand out in its case and removed it. ” the pistol”.

“There was nothing in the script about the weapon fired by Baldwin or anyone else,” the lawsuit says. Lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents Mamie Mitchell, told a press conference on Wednesday that Baldwin’s behavior was “reckless” and that the actor and producer “chose to play Russian roulette when he fired with a gun without checking it “. in his presence.

This is the second lawsuit against Baldwin and the other producers of “Rust”. Last week, the head of the film’s lighting team, Serge Svetnoy, filed the first lawsuit, alleging negligence on the part of production managers.
