His complaint, filed in LA, alleges negligence and seeks damages for his “immense grief”.

It states: “This tragedy happened because live bullets were loaded into the gun.”

It claims prop master Sarah Zachry failed to disclose that armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was acting recklessly off set and was a safety risk.

Also named in the suit are first assistant director Dave Halls and prop supplier Seth Kenney.

His complaint is a response to one filed by a script supervisor which blames Halls, Kenney and Baldwin for her severe emotional distress.

A criminal investigation is ongoing into the 2021 shooting, which also injured Rust director Joel Souza, in New Mexico.

Halyna Hutchins, 42, was killed filming Rust near Santa Fe last year after Baldwin’s prop gun discharged a live round.

An undisclosed settlement was announced after her family sued Baldwin and other producers for wrongful death.

District Attorney official Heather Brewer said: “While civil suits are settled privately and often involve financial awards, criminal cases deal only in facts.

“If the facts and evidence warrant criminal charges under New Mexico law then charges will be brought.
