They sue the supplier of bullets from the movie

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armor of the movie “rust”, on whose film set the cinematographer died Halyna Hutchins After being accidentally shot by actor Alec Baldwin, he sued the western’s ammunition supplier on Wednesday, whom he accused of having left real bullets in the middle of fictitious cartridges.

The tragic episode occurred on October 21, when Baldwin, also a co-producer of the film, used a weapon presented as harmless during the repetition of a scene and, in addition to having executed a fatal shot against Hutchins, wounded director Joel Souza. In accordance with the safety rules in the cinema, real bullets are totally prohibited on filming.

In his civil complaint, filed in court, Reed rebukes supplier, Seth Kenney, having delivered “ammunition that was erroneously presented as dummy ammunition”, inert and without gunpowder, “when they contained both dummy and real ammunition”.

According to the document, the police discovered after the incident “seven bullets” apparently real distributed in a box of cartridges, a carriage, and cartridge belts that served as props for the actors.

For the young armorer, supplier’s negligence “led to the introduction of live bullets on the set, which resulted in a foreseeable catastrophe.” The compensation claimed in the lawsuit is not known.

Kenney told the authorities that he could potentially sell hand-assembled ammunition to the film production – perhaps from recycled elements – whose logo corresponds to the one on the deadly cartridge. But then he excluded the eventuality on the ABC channel.

So far no one has been arrested, but justice does not exclude criminal prosecution.

Baldwin: “I didn’t pull the trigger”

Baldwin said he never pulled the trigger on the gun he accidentally killed Hutchins with during the filming of “Rust.”

“The trigger was not pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger, ever,” Baldwin said in a report for ABC broadcast in early December.

In addition, on that occasion, he noted: “Someone put live ammo in that gun, a bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be in the building.”

For his part, Dave Halls, assistant director of Rust, supported Baldwin’s statements, in statements made through his lawyer: “He has told me from the first day I met him that Alec did not pull the trigger.”

“His finger was never on the trigger,” Halls’ attorney, Lisa Torraco, said in an exclusive interview with ABC News.

In recent days, the actor made a furious release on his social networks in the face of a series of versions that argued that he does not collaborate with Justice. “Any suggestion that I don’t answer questions o I do not comply with orders, requests or guarantees regarding my phone it’s bullshit, a lie“Protested the actor and producer.

The American press reported that Baldwin was denying the surrender of his cell phone. “There could be incriminating evidence on the phone, or it could be for privacy reasons,” Kevin Kearon, a former Nassau district attorney and current criminal defender, said in an interview with The New York Post.

“Obviously, we will comply with all requests. We absolutely agree,” replied the actor.
