Blake Lively has been injured on the set of “The Rhythm Section,” and production has been “temporarily” suspended on the spy thriller.

“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 whilst filming an action sequence. Production will resume as soon as possible,” a spokesperson for the production told TheWrap on Monday.

Representatives for Lively have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

On Sunday, the actress took to Instagram to tease an image from the upcoming movie, in which she swapped out her signature long blond locks for a black pixie haircut.

Reed Morano is directing “Rhythm Section,” the first film in what’s intended to become a franchise with James Bond producers Wilson and Broccoli producing. Jude Law is also attached to the film. Paramount will distribute it in most world territories.

“The Rhythm Section” is based on a series of spy novels by Mark Burnell, which tell the story of woman scorned by the loss of her family in a mysterious plane crash.

It is aiming for a wide release on Feb. 22, 2019.
