Blake Lively Will Return to ‘The Rhythm Section’ in June After Hand Injury Heals


Blake Lively will reportedly return to the set of her current movie The Rhythm Section in June (18) after a second surgery on her injured hand.

The thriller was shut down indefinitely last week (ends02Feb18) to allow the actress to recover fully from the on-set injury, and now sources tell the film is expected to resume production in Spain this summer.

Filming on The Rhythm Section in Dublin, Ireland was first halted in early December (17) after Blake suffered a serious mishap while filming an action sequence, and sources close to the set told WENN she may have broken a finger.

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,” a statement from a production spokesperson read.

“Production will resume as soon as possible.”

It was shut down again last month (Jan18) amid reports suggesting the injury isn’t healing properly and Lively was forced to step away from the project.

One source told MailOnline that filming had been suspended indefinitely, and it could be five months before Blake, who plays a troubled woman seeking revenge following the airplane crash deaths of her family members, will be back on set.

The 30-year-old actress reportedly underwent surgery on her hand back in early December and now needs a second procedure.

Lively plays Stephanie Patrick in the film, opposite Jude Law.

The Rhythm Section, which is based on the first book in a series by Mark Burnell, is still set for release in February, 2019.
