Blake Lively Suffers Injury on 'The Rhythm Section' Set
Let it never be said that acting is easy. Injuries can be part of the job, as Blake Lively can personally attest.
The actress has been busy filming Paramount's upcoming spy flick "The Rhythm Section," and news broke Monday that she suffered an on-set injury. The studio confirmed that she hurt her hand while shooting an action sequence, leading production to be put on hold, as Deadline reports.
"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," the statement read. "Production will resume as soon as possible."
Unfortunately for concerned fans, that is pretty vague; there are no details as to the extent of Lively's injury or how long it may take her to heal. Hopefully, she isn't too badly hurt and will be back to 100 percent soon.
The movie is based on novelist Mark Burnell's book of the same name, which is the first in the Stephanie Patrick series. Lively plays the protagonist, a woman reeling after losing her family in a deadly plane crash. When she discovers that their deaths were part of a terror attack covered up by the government, she gets the push she needs to pull herself out of her spiral and seek the truth.
"The Rhythm Section" is slated to open on Feb. 22, 2019.
