Production Suspended After Blake Lively Injures Hand on The Rhythm Section Set
Blake Lively has been busy filming her latest movie, The Rhythm Section, with Jude Law, Daniel Mays, Raza Jaffrey and more, for the past several weeks. The 30-year-old will get a brief break, which sounds better than it actually is, because production was temporarily suspended after she suffered a hand injury on set.
“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. Production will resume as soon as possible,” a spokesperson for the film said yesterday in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
More details about the seriousness of the blonde’s injury are not known at this time.
The Rhythm Section, which is currently filming in Dublin, is a big-screen adaptation of British thriller author Mark Burnell‘s first book in the Stephanie Patrick series. It follows a woman (Blake) who “seeks revenge against those who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family.”
Ryan Reynolds‘ wife announced her involvement in the project back in July by posting a picture of the novel on her Instagram page.
She captioned the image, “Yes. Yes. Yes!!! I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this incredible and complex hero to life. @reedmorano Let’s go!”
Blake’s injury comes about four months after a stuntwoman died on the set of Deadpool 2 during a motorcycle scene gone wrong.
According to eyewitnesses, the woman lost control of the motorized bike as she was filming a scene and crashed through a window near Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver. TMZ reports that she “went airborne” before coming to a stop with her body partially inside and partially outside the building.
