Blake Lively has been injured on the set of new film The Rhythm Section, with production temporarily suspended.
Gossip Girl star Lively appears in the movie alongside Jude Law and Daniel Mays. Directed by The Handmaid’s Tale‘s Reed Morano and produced by Bond filmmakers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the film is expected for release in February 2019.
A spokesperson for the film confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Lively “sustained an injury to her hand while filming an action sequence” and that “filming has been temporarily suspended” as a result.
“Production will resume as soon as possible,” the statement adds.
A synopsis for the film reads: “A woman seeks revenge against those who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family.”
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ baby has a credit on Taylor Swift’s new album ‘Reputation’. Their eldest daughter James Reynolds is responsible for the “baby intro voice” on the song ‘Gorgeous’.
