Blake Lively looked totally unrecognisable while filming for upcoming spy thriller The Rhythm Section in Dublin’s City Centre.
Last month, Goss.ie exclusively revealed where Blake and her famous husband Ryan Reynolds are staying in Ireland while she’s here for work – and now it looks like the Hollywood actress has finally started filming.
The 30-year-old, who will play assassin Stephanie Patrick in the film, was pictured on set in Dublin, and looked totally different compared to her usual red carpet attire.
Dressed down in a blue beanie, a hoodie, a grey winter coat and burgundy trousers, Blake was being filmed smoking a cigarette outside a fast food restaurant.
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, 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.
In a previous statement, Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said, “It is exciting for us to be working with the immensely talented team of director Reed Morano and actress Blake Lively, who have a strong vision for this very compelling story driven by a female protagonist.”
Production company IM Global founder Stuart Ford said, “In Stephanie Patrick, Mark has created a unique female heroine who turns so many of the current cinematic clichés surrounding so-called ‘kick-ass’ female leads on their head.”
“To be bringing such a fresh, realistic and bold international thriller to the big screen with EON Productions, Reed and Blake is an exciting proposition for us all at IM Global.”
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.
