The “Rust” film crew sued Alec Baldwin and others involved in the production after the deadly film was filmed

Read Time:2 Minute, 34 Second


Svetnoy’s lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles against multiple companies and individuals related to the film, including the producer and two crew members. It accused Baldwin, assistant director David Hols, ordnance manufacturer Hanna Gutierrez Reid and other defendants of negligence causing him “serious emotional distress.”

The lawsuit was filed after Baldwin shot and shot during rehearsal last month, which included a live broadcast, killing cinematographer Harina Hutchins and injuring director Joel Suza. According to court documents, Baldwin had stated that he believed there was no live ammunition in the gun.

Hutchins, 42, was airlifted to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Souza, 48, suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder and is recovering.

The lawsuit alleges that Svetnoy, who was the chief lighting technician on the set, was hit by “discharge material” from the fatal explosion and stated that he was almost hit by a bullet. He accused the filmmakers of failing to hire competent and experienced armorers, etc.

“In short, there is no reason to put live ammunition in the .45 Colt revolver or appear anywhere in the Rust suit, and the presence of bullets in the revolver poses a deadly threat to everyone in the vicinity,” the lawsuit stated, claiming that it did not Able to “implement and maintain industry standards for the custody and control of guns used on site”.

The lawsuit alleges that the producers of the film allowed real ammunition to be stored on the set, thus violating their duties.

The lawsuit stated: “The plaintiff was informed and believed, and based on this information and belief, claimed that the ammunition used on the’Rust’ device was never safely stored, but was left unattended in the prop truck.”

CNN has contacted representatives of Baldwin, Hols and Gutierrez Reid, as well as the “rust” film production company, but did not receive an immediate response.

Gutierrez Reid’s lawyer, Jason Bowles, issued a statement on Wednesday, questioning how the live rounds ended up in the “dummy” boxes and who put them there.

“We are convinced that this is sabotage and Hannah is being framed,” Bowles said. “We believe that the scene was tampered with before the police arrived.”

Previously, Rust Movie Productions LLC stated, “The safety of our actors and staff is the top priority of Rust Productions and everyone associated with the company. Although we have not received any official complaints about the safety of weapons or props on the set, But we will conduct an internal review of our procedures during the shutdown period.”

According to the lawsuit, Svetnoy and Hutchins are considered “close friends” and have collaborated on nine films since 2017.

Svetnoy had previously talked about his trauma in this incident and posted on Facebook that he “held her in his arms when she was about to die” and “her hands were covered with blood.” He also shared what he called the last photo of Hutchins in the New Mexico film on Facebook.
