Filming for Blake Lively’s new film has been suspended, after the actress sustained an injury while filming an action sequence.
The 30-year-old has been filming for upcoming spy thriller The Rhythm Section in Dublin and Wicklow over the past few weeks – but production on the film has been temporarily halted, after Blake injured her hand on set.
In a statement to Us Weekly, a spokesperson said, “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.”
“Production will resume as soon as possible,” they added.
Over the past few weeks, the stunning blonde has been spotted looking totally unrecognisable while filming on the streets of Dublin.
The Rhythm Section is a female global espionage thriller, which is being produced by the makers of the Bond movies, and directed by The Handmaid’s Tale director/exec producer Reed Morano.
The Rhythm Section will be the movie adaption of the first book in Mark Burnell’s four-part series, and the story follows the lead character, Stephanie Patrick (Blake Lively), whose life is ruined when her family are all killed in a plane crash that she was meant to be on.
However, she then discovers that the plane crash wasn’t an accident, and turns into a deadly assassin – determined to take revenge on the people responsible.
Parts of the US, the UK, Spain, and Switzerland will also record scenes for the thriller.
With three other books in the series, producers are hoping the film will follow in the footsteps of the James Bond films and turn into a franchise.
