Blake Lively, 30, injured her hand on set of upcoming action-thriller The Rhythm Section.


Production on the project has been halted in the aftermath. Producers said in a statement that Lively hurt her hand during an action sequence, and that filming will resume as quickly as possible.

In the film, Lively plays a woman seeking answers and revenge after her family is killed in a plane crash. She becomes convinced that the crash was no accident. The film is an adaptation of the Mark Burnell novel of the same name, and is expected to hit theaters in 2019. It is the first in Burnell’s series of novels about female spy Stephanie Patrick.

The film is being produced by James Bond executive Barbara Broccoli. She announced Lively as a star earlier this year, alongside Jude Law.

Lively shares two children with Hollywood husband Ryan Reynolds. The pair are known for publicly pranking each other, and Reynolds recently got his wife by posting a photo of her in character from The Rhythm Section, in which she looks like a homeless person.
