Second lawsuit against Alec Baldwin alleges film script ‘didn't call for gun to be fired’
BBC, 18 Nov 2021
A lawsuit against Alec Baldwin alleges that a film script did not require him to fire a gun when he fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
Script supervisor Mamie Mitchell - who called police after the shooting on the New Mexico film set - filed the suit, with her lawyer accusing the actor of "playing Russian roulette" when he fired the gun without checking it.
Mr Baldwin and the film's producers, who were also named in the lawsuit, have not yet commented.
It is the second lawsuit to be filed over the incident, after the set's head electrician began legal action earlier this month.
