      The 29-page filing names star-producer Baldwin, Rust producers and production companies, armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed, first assistant director David Halls, property master Sarah Zachry and others in another damning portrayal of a film playing fast and loose with safety and other regulations.

      "Alec Baldwin intentionally, without just cause or excuse, cocked and fired the loaded gun even though the upcoming scene to be filmed did not call for the cocking and firing of the firearm. Mr Baldwin chose to play Russian Roulette with a loaded gun without checking it and without having the armorer do so," reads Mitchell's complaint claiming assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress.

      "Alec Baldwin should have assumed that the gun in question was loaded unless and until it was demonstrated to him or checked by him that it was not loaded. He had no right to rely upon some alleged statement by the Assistant Director that it was a 'cold gun,'" the complaint added.

      "Mr. Baldwin cannot hide behind the Assistant Director to attempt to excuse the fact that he did not check the gun himself," Mitchell added. She also revealed that she was at the church location on the Bonanza Creek Ranch when Baldwin's "quick draw" rehearsal turned tragic.

      She added in the lawsuit that there were two previous weapons discharge accidents on the Rust set before October 21.
