Paramount’s Blake Lively Spy Thriller ‘Rhythm Section’ Set to Hit Theaters in February 2019

Paramount’s Blake Lively-headlined spy thriller from the producers of the James Bond films, “Rhythm Section,” will be released wide on February 22, 2019, the studio announced Monday.

The studio also slated an untitled Tyler Perry film for April 12, 2019.

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

The series is based on a series of spy novels by Mark Burnell. “The Rhythm Section” will be adapted from Burnell’s books about character Stephanie Patrick — a woman scorned by the loss of her family in a mysterious plane crash.
