Lively seriously injured her hand during a stunt in December. She had surgery, but it didn't go as planned. So she had second surgery, and the movie shut down production so she could heal.
Well, The Hollywood Reporter was told she has made a full recovery, and production will resume in June in Spain. That was the plan back in January, so it sounds like things are back on the revised schedule.
In other good news, Sterling K. Brown has joined the cast. No clue what role the "This Is Us" star will be playing, but he does tend to make everything he's in even better. So welcome aboard.
Blake Lively is going to shine in this lead role, which adapts the first of Mark Burnell's Stephanie Patrick novels. She plays "a woman who assumes three different identities as she seeks to uncover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family — a flight that she was meant to be on."
Jude Law also stars in "The Rhythm Section," which kept its February 22, 2019, release date through the hiatus.
Both Sterling K. Brown and the film's director Reed Morano tweeted excitement about SKB joining the cast:
