Production on Blake Lively's latest feature, The Rhythm Section, has been temporarily halted after the actress injured her hand. 

"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 production said Monday in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Rhythm Section, which is currently filming in Dublin, is an adaptation of the first of Mark Burnell’s Stephanie Patrick novels, which follows a woman (Lively) that seeks to uncover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family — a flight that she was meant to be on. 

Jude Law also stars in the feature from The Handmaid's Tale director Reed Morano. James Bond filmmakers Wilson and Broccoli are producing through their Eon Productions banner, with Global Road financing.

Paramount, which is handling worldwide distribution, has dated The Rhythm Section for a Feb. 22, 2019, release.
