New sensational news emerges regarding the Rust case: last October, director of photography Halyna Hutchins died while director Joel Souza was injured by a bullet fired by Alec Baldwin. The plaintiff's lawyers are demanding the dismissal of the lawsuit brought by a member of the crew, classifying the tragedy as an accident at work.
For now, the relatives of the victim and the director have not filed a complaint against the production, despite having taken steps to hire lawyers. Alec Baldwin's attorneys brought the request for dismissal of the trial, which says: "Nothing in the plaintiff's allegations suggests that any of the defendants, including Mr.
Baldwin, intended to voluntarily load the firearm with live bullets, nor that they were knowledge of this circumstance. While negligence still exists, it would not be aggression." Throughout his career, Alec Baldwin has received multiple awards and nominations including three Emmy Awards, eight Screen Actors Guild Awards, three Golden Globes, a Tony Award nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Play for his work on Broadway.
and an Aacademy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for The Cooler. In addition, he has taken part in many famous movies, such as Beetlejuice, The Hunt for Red October, Pearl Harbor, The Aviator, Elizabethtown, The Departed, Blu Jasmine and BlacKkKlansman.
Latest on Alec Baldwin's issues
There is no peace for Alec Baldwin. The American actor had already entered a maelstrom of investigation and controversy over the death of the director of photography of his film Rust, killed by a bullet from a gun in Baldwin's hand.
Now it adds a new piece in the actor's troubled last year. In fact, Baldwin was sued for defamation by the family of Rylee McCollum, an American Marine killed last year in Kabul, Afghanistan. According to People Magazine, the soldier's sisters and widow sued Baldwin asking for $ 25 million in damages.
The actor, through postings on Instagram subsequently deleted, allegedly accused them of taking part in the assault of January 6, 2021 on Capitol Hill, when a group of Trump supporters forcibly entered the headquarters of the US Congress.
Baldwin, after the soldier's death, had searched Instagram for his family members, to whom he had sent 5 thousand dollars to be delivered to the marine's widow, Jiennah Crayton. At the beginning of 2022, after finding some photos taken by herself during the demonstrations on January 6, 2021 on Roice's social profile, Baldwin would have written to her privately to find out if she was the woman he had sent money to.
She would have told him that protesting is perfectly legal. However, the actor would not have liked the answer, who would later share the image on his Instagram profile. From there, the hatred of the actor's fans would be unleashed against the girl and the widow of the marine.
Meanwhile, regarding the investigation into the death of Rust's director of photography Halyna Hutchins, Aaron Dyer, Baldwin's attorney, said, “Alec did nothing wrong. Clearly he was told the gun was unloaded. The real question is: how did a loaded gun arrive on set?"
