Production Halted After Blake Lively Suffered Injury On Set Of New Movie

The Hollywood Reporter

Actress Blake Lively had sustained an injury while filming an action scene for her upcoming movie, The Rhythm Section.

The injury appears to be serious as the film studio released a statement that production on the spy thriller has ground to a halt while the actress receives medical attention.

Paramount Pictures provided further details on the actress's injury in their statement saying, "filming has been temporarily suspended on The Rhythm Section as Blake Lively sustained an injury to her hand whilst shooting. Production will resume as soon as possible."

There are no reports suggesting that the damage to her hand required emergency care, however, as of yet there is no mention of when the studio will continue filming.

The role was expected to be physically taxing due to the nature of the plot, based on British thriller writer Mark Burnell's Stephanie Patrick spy series.

In the movie, Lively stars as a mother whose family is killed in a plane crash she was meant to be on, but has reason to believe that she was in fact the target of a high-profile assassination attempt. She assumes the identity of the suspected killers in order to uncover the truth of the tragedy.

This past weekend, Lively was seen with a dramatic change in appearance as she slips into her undercover role. With short, jet black hair, Lively already appears colder and more dangerous on set in Dublin, Ireland, where production has been ongoing.

We hope to hear of a speedy recovery for the actress.
