Baldwin files lawsuit against movie crew
Actor Alec Baldwin has filed a lawsuit against an armorer and three other crew members over the deadly shooting on the set of the Western movie Rust, which claimed the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
Baldwin’s suit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court as a cross-complaint stemming from a previous suit in which a different member of the crew named Baldwin and the others as defendants.
It is one of many pieces of litigation stemming from the October 21, 2021 tragedy which is also under criminal investigation and could result in New Mexico state charges.
Baldwin’s cross-complaint names armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, first assistant director Dave Halls, prop supplier Seth Kenney and prop master Sarah Zachry.
