Production has come to a temporary halt on Blake Lively's latest movie, The Rhythm Section.
The 30-year-old injured her hand while filming the spy thriller. While the incident wasn't life-threatening, it was enough to hold things up considerably while the Gossip Girl actress recovers enough to pick up where she left off.

"Filming has been temporarily suspended," a spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter, according to the Independent. "Blake Lively sustained an injury to her hand while filming an action sequence. Production will resume as soon as possible." The movie is due for release next year and also stars British actor Jude Law. Lively plays the part of a woman in the midst of a crisis after losing her family in a plane crash.
Lively was the breakout star of teen series Gossip Girl, in which she played socialite Serena van der Woodsen. After her stint on the show ended, it didn't take long her for to make the transition from the small screen to A-list movie star. She now has several blockbusters under her belt, including the Age of Adelaide and The Shallows. As well as her successful career, Lively has an enviable home life. She married fellow actor Ryan Reynolds after the pair met while filming Green Lantern in 2010. They went on to marry at Boone Hall in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina a short while later in 2012. The happy couple can often be seen smiling adoringly at each other in the press, along with their two daughters, James and Ines.
It was recently reported that production for the highly anticipated movie is due to resume in June of this year. It's thought that the long duration of time is to ensure the actress has recovered fully before the jump back into the grueling schedule. The movie is directed by Emmy winner Reed Morano, who is coming straight from the success of The Handmaid's Tale.
