Blake Lively's spy movie has been shut down after her hand injury on the Dublin set

The film is only about half finished.

BLAKE LIVELY HAS been living around Dublin on and off for the last few months to film her new movie, The Rhythm Section.

She and husband Ryan Reynolds were spotted enjoying the surrounds of Powerscourt, and were rumoured to be renting an apartment in Killiney while Blake shot the movie around Dublin and Wicklow.

The film is an adaptation of Mark Burnell’s first Stephanie Patrick novel about a woman looking to discover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family. It has a budget of $50 million and is produced by the company behind James Bond, and also stars Jude Law. Reed Morano was directing, often posting updates on her Instagram of the Irish sets.

However, it’s all coming to a halt. The actress sustained an injury on her hand back in December while doing stunts in Dublin, and the set was temporarily shut down. It’s now being reported by The Hollywood Reporter that the production has shut down indefinitely, following the wound on Blake’s hand needing a second surgery.

According to the publication, Blake’s surgery didn’t go as planned so people working on the set have been dismissed. An insider told the HR that just under half of the movie has been shot, and it could be another five months before they resume shooting.
