The Rhythm Section production shut down following Blake Lively injury

The Rhythm Section production shut down following Blake Lively injury

The studio, along with producers Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Global Road, sent a statement to Variety, confirming that filming was "temporarily suspended".

The 30-year-old actress reportedly injured her hand while filming an action sequence on Monday and production was temporarily halted as a result. "Production will resume as soon as possible", a spokesperson for production told THR.

While the actress was shooting her upcoming movie in Dublin, she, unfortunately, suffered an injury that led to the entire production being put on hold until her full recovery!

Paramount acquired rights to "The Rhythm Section" in August, setting "The Handmaid's Tale" exec producer Reed Morano to direct from a script by Burnell.


She also showed off a snap from the film on Instagram over the weekend.

The spy thriller was slated to hit theaters February 22, 2019.

On Sunday, the "Gossip Girl" star shared a picture on Twitter looking dramatically different from what fans are used to as she sported short black hair for the filming of the movie.

The Rhythm Section is an adaptation of the first of Mark Burnell's Stephanie Patrick novels, which follow a woman (Lively) that seeks to uncover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family- a flight that she was meant to be on. There is no word yet on if her injury will change the release date.
