Production on The Rhythm Section, currently filming in Dublin, has temporarily halted after actress Blake Lively sustained an injury on set.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, director Reed Morano confirmed that Lively had injured her hand while filming an action scene in the city on Monday.

She said: 

'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.' 

Blake has been spotted in various guises all over the city in recent weeks, with her husband Ryan Reynolds and actor Jude Law also spotted hanging about the set.

The Rhythm Section tells the story of a young woman (Lively) who seeks revenge on a group of people who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family. 

It's due for release in February 2019.

Get well soon, Blake!
