Three members of the crew of “Rust”, the western that ended up in the news due to the bullet from a gun that Alec Baldwin was holding and which killed the director of photography Halyna Hutchins, have decided to sue the actor and to the production for the damages sustained on the set. These are, in particular, Ross Addiego, Doran Curtin and Reese Price.
The accusation of the three crew members
The three accused Baldwin himself and the production of negligence in court. “They ignored the safety rules of the film industry, taking shortcuts to finish the film,” they argued. Everyone was present on the set when the fatal bullet was fired from the gun during a rehearsal scene and claimed that the star pulled his finger on the trigger, which Baldwin himself has repeatedly denied. Addiego, Curtin and Price said the force of the blast left them dumbfounded. “The sound was deafening. Price felt the physical force of the blow in the confined space where he was. His ears started ringing,” they reported in the complaint. Baldwin is currently on trial in Santa Fe for manslaughter along with the crew’s armory, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed.
