Alec Baldwin has filed a lawsuit against the “Rust” armorer and crew for handing him the loaded gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film, reports ABC 7 News. The actor accused several people working on the film of negligence, proclaiming they should have never given him a gun that was loaded. The group consists of the film’s armorer, ammo supplier and prop master. The documents claim Baldwin has to “live with the immense grief and resulting emotional, physical toll” that resulted from the negligent conduct. Said the “30 Rock” actor’s lawyer, Luke Nikas of Quinn Emanuel, “More than anyone else on the set, Baldwin has been wrongfully viewed as the perpetrator of this tragedy. By these cross-claims, Baldwin seeks to clear his name and hold Cross-Defendants accountable for their misconduct.” The lawsuit comes after Hutchins’ family reached a settlement in its wrongful death lawsuit against the movie’s producers. Hutchins’ husband, Matthew Hutchins, has now become a producer of “Rust,” which will reportedly continue production, possibly in California in 2023……
