Blake Lively (Gossip Girl, The Age of Adaline) has been injured on the set of the espionage film The Rhythm Section, according to THR. The injury was to her hand and production in Dublin has been temporarily halted. It is expected to resume as soon as possible.
In a statement to the site, 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 while filming an action sequence.

The Rhythm Section is a contemporary adaptation of the first of British thriller writer Mark Burnell’s “Stephanie Patrick” series of four novels. Heroine, Stephanie Patrick (Blake Lively) is on a path of self-destruction after the death of her family in an airplane crash, a flight that she was meant to be on. After discovering that the crash was not an accident, her anger awakens a new sense of purpose and she rises to uncover the truth by adapting the identity of an assassin to track down those responsible. The new, and lethal, Stephanie Patrick is on a mission to fill the void between what she knows and what she is told. Other novels in Burnell’s popular series include “Gemini,” “The Third Woman” and “Chameleon.”
The Rhythm Section began production in the fall of 2017 and is currently filming in Dublin, Ireland. Are you guys interested in the film? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @ComingSoonnet. The Rhythm Section will hit theaters on February 22, 2019.
