Three members of the Rust crew are suing Alec Baldwin

Three members of the crew of Rust, the western that ended up in the news due to the bullet from a gun that Alec Baldwin was holding and which killed the cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, have decided to sue the actor and the production for damage sustained on set.

They are Ross Addiego, Doran Curtin and Reese Price. The three accused Baldwin himself and the production of negligence in court. Everyone was present on the set when the fatal bullet was fired from the gun during a rehearsal scene and claimed that the star pulled his finger on the trigger, which Baldwin himself has repeatedly denied.

Addiego, Curtin and Price said the force of the blast left them dumbfounded. Baldwin is currently on trial in Santa Fe for manslaughter along with the crew's armory, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed.

Alec Baldwin had already entered a maelstrom of investigation and controversy over the death of the director of photography of his film Rust, killed by a bullet from a gun in Baldwin's hand.

Rust director Joel Souza was injured but survived, while Halyna Hutchins died after being flown to the University of New Mexico hospital. During a recent interview with ABC News, Baldwin claimed he did not pull the trigger on the gun that fatally wounded Hutchins, even though he was aiming what he thought was a harmless prop in his direction when he fired.

the firing of the bullet." Vanity Fair reporter Anthony Breznican overheard Santa Fe County District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies who said, "One of the detectives in my office has a very old type of revolver, and so he brought it, at my request, so we could look at it and see if it was possible." The American actor had already entered a maelstrom of investigation and controversy over the death of the director of photography of his film Rust, killed by a bullet from a gun in Baldwin's hand.

Now it adds a new piece in the actor's troubled last year. In fact, Baldwin was sued for defamation by the family of Rylee McCollum, an American Marine killed last year in Kabul, Afghanistan. According to People Magazine, the soldier's sisters and widow sued Baldwin asking for $ 25 million in damages.

The actor, through postings on Instagram subsequently deleted, allegedly accused them of taking part in the assault of January 6, 2021 on Capitol Hill, when a group of Trump supporters forcibly entered the headquarters of the US Congress.

Baldwin, after the soldier's death, had searched Instagram for his family members, to whom he had sent 5 thousand dollars to be delivered to the marine's widow, Jiennah Crayton. At the beginning of 2022, after finding some photos taken by herself during the demonstrations on January 6, 2021 on Roice's social profile, Baldwin would have written to her privately to find out if she was the woman he had sent money to.

Clearly he was told the gun was unloaded. The real question is: how did a loaded gun arrive on set?"
