Production on Blake Lively's spy movie shut down after injury in Dublin

Crew members have been told to find other work.

Production of Blake Lively's upcoming spy thriller, The Rhythm Section, has reportedly been shut down indefinitely.

The former Gossip Girl star had been spotted filming at a number of locations throughout Dublin in November and December.

The actress sustained an injury to her hand last month while she was filming in the capital, and production was temporarily suspended while she took time to heal.

But according to The Hollywood Reporterproduction has now been shut down "indefinitely" after the publication states the actress needs further surgery.

Crew members are said to have been told to find other work during this time.

Filming was approximately halfway completed, sources told the magazine, but it may not pick up again for another five months.

The actress had been spotted wearing what appears to be a cast on her hand in a number of social media posts over the last few weeks.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds had relocated to Ireland with their children in October, reportedly renting a home in Dalkey, Co Dublin for the duration of the film shoot.

The Rhythm Section, which also features Jude Law, tells the tale of an assassin who loses her entire family in a plane crash.

She then goes off and seeks revenge on those she believes are responsible.

It is due to be released in February 2019.
