Script supervisor of Rust has brought up a lawsuit against Alec Baldwin for the accidental shooting on set.
The script supervisor, Mamie Mitchell, had been the one who called the police when the bullet from the prop gun had fatally reached Halyna Hutchins, director of photography for the movie.
She had filed a lawsuit alleging Baldwin of using a gun in a movie that did not require him to use a gun.
Her lawyer further charged the actor of trying to play out some action figure by riskily using a gun without having checked if it was loaded in the first place.
Baldwin and other producers of the movie were mentioned in the lawsuit and are yet to respond.
The police who are still investigating the shooting occurrence is yet to bring up criminal charges against any member of the crew.
According to BBC News, the lawsuit filed by the script supervisor explains that the movie script required three gunshots – a shot at both of Baldwin’s eyes, a second on one of his shoulders, and the last at his torso.
She claims that the script did not make any requirement for Baldwin to make use of the gun in his holster.
He was only meant to make as if to remove the gun.
According to the records of the event with the court, Baldwin had been handed a gun by the assistant director who was unaware of the live round in the gun.
The gun was signalled as a cold gun, and instead of doing a proper confirmation check, the actor had discharged the weapon.
This meant that the chance of having someone injured on set was not highly unlikely.
The accuser, Ms Mitchell had reportedly stood about four feet away from Baldwin when the gun was discharged.
The lawsuit is claiming deliberate infliction spurred by careless attitude to safety protocols.
