Is Alec Baldwin lying about working with an underage star in his new book?

A producer is calling bluff on a particularly unsettling story in Alec’s new biography.

In Alec Baldwin’s upcoming tell-all, Nevertheless, he looks back on the 2006 movie Mini's First Time where he plays a man having an affair with his stepdaughter, played by actress Nikki Reed, who was a teenager at the time.
"I was 47, and it never occurred to me to ask how old Nikki Reed was," the SNL heavyweight writes.

The 2006 indie flick followed the story of an older man, played by Alec, hooking up with his stepdaughter (Nikki Reed).
"When I found out, just as we finished, that she was 17, I flipped out on the producers, who had told me something different," Alec claims.
But one the film’s producers Dana Brunetti has taken to Twitter to slam his version of events.
"My first indie film was Mini's starring @AlecBaldwin who knew @NikkiReed_I_Am was 16 (not 17 [as Alec wrote]) and he didn't mind," Dana alleged.
Before adding: "In fact she was one of four actresses [he] had approved and her being the only one of those four repped by his own agency CAA."

To cap it off, the producer made this request:
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Dana elaborated on the matter: "I read it and was like, 'What the f---. Of course he totally knew how old she was."
"That's why there’s no nudity in the movie. He knew before we even cast the movie. I think he's been method acting Trump too much and he doesn’t know the difference between fake news anymore."
Meanwhile another producer from the flick, Evan Astrowsky, backed up Dana's claims telling The Hollywood Reporter: "What Alec says happened is not accurate.We were on set every day. The thing that Alec must remember is that Mini, played by Nikki, is a sophomore in high school. I don't know what else to say, except Alec, watch the movie.
Twilight star Nikki, who is now 28, is yet to make a comment.
Dana Brunetti has rubbished Alec's story.
According to producers, Alec knew of Nikki's age during filming.
