Production on “The Rhythm Section” has been halted after star Blake Lively suffered an injury on the set of the upcoming spy thriller.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Lively, 30, suffered the injury while filming an action sequence for the upcoming feature film, currently shooting in Dublin, Ireland.
According to a statement from the movie’s producers, production has been “temporarily suspended” as a result of Lively’s injury.
“Paramount, Global Road (formerly known as IM Global) and producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli today confirmed that filming has been temporarily suspended on ‘The Rhythm Section’ as Blake Lively sustained an injury to her hand whilst filming an action sequence,” reads a statement provided to ET Canada. “Production will resume as soon as possible.”
As THR notes, “The Rhythm Section” is an adaptation of the first novel in author Mark Burnell’s Stephanie Patrick series, in which Lively stars as a woman looking to discover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family — and which she was supposed to be on. Jude Law (“The Young Pope”) co-stars.
