Blake Lively has sustained an injury while filming “The Rhythm Section,” and this has led the producers of the upcoming female-fronted spy thriller to temporarily suspend production.

On Monday, a spokesperson for the production issued a statement to Us Weekly, announcing that filming for Lively’s new flick got suspended. “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.”

According to the spokesperson, Ryan Reynolds’ wife obtained an injury to her hand while she was filming an action sequence for the movie. The severity of the injury wasn’t revealed, but it’s clear that it was not gravely serious as the representative confirmed that “production will resume as soon as possible.”

Since filming for the movie is delayed, some sources assume that this will impact the film’s Feb. 22, 2019 release date. Producers haven’t said anything about this so far, so it’s still possible that the scheduled premiere for Lively’s new flick will push through.

Prior the temporary suspension, the “Gossip Girl” alum was spotted by People sporting a boyish look on set due to her short black hair. The actress, herself, showed off to her fans over the weekend her new look for the movie by posting a screenshot from one of her scenes on Instagram.

In the film, Lively plays a woman, named Stephanie Patrick, who is forced to do everything to uncover the truth about the deaths of her family members. Her character adopts the identity of an assassin in an attempt to take down the people responsible for the plane crash that killed her loved ones.

“The Rhythm Section,” which also stars “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” actor Jude Law, is being helmed by “The Handmaid’s Tale” EP and director Reed Morano. The script was penned by Mark Burnell, according to Deadline.

In July, Lively shared her excitement to take on the project with her fans on social media. She posted a photo of Burnell’s original novel the movie is based on, and captioned it: “Yes. Yes. Yes!!! I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this incredible and complex hero to life.”
