A Simple Favor Blake Lively

Lionsgate



Blake Lively's next movie, "The Rhythm Section," is getting pushed back to Thanksgiving.

The spy thriller from director Reed Morano was initially supposed to open on February 22. Its new release date is November 22, the Friday before Thanksgiving, and will go up against Disney's "Frozen 2."

Now, it makes sense that a trailer for the movie had yet to be unveiled.

Paramount is likely moving the film to fall in hopes for better box office returns and awards notice. The gritty action drama is adapted from Mark Burnell’s novels and comes from James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.

The protagonist, a woman called Stephanie Patrick, takes an assassin’s identity so she can carry out revenge against the people who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family.

The movie also stars Jude Law, Sterling K. Brown, and Raza Jeffrey.
