‘This is Us’ star Sterling K. Brown joins ‘Rhythm Section’ cast as production resumes.
Production was halted in late January after the spy movie’s star Blake Lively sustained a critical hand injury while shooting a stunt in December. Lively underwent a surgery that did not go as planned and required a second surgery, necessitating more recovery time.
The project is a contemporary adaptation of the first of Mark Burnell’s Stephanie Patrick novels, which follows a woman (Lively) who assumes three different identities as she seeks to uncover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family — a flight that she was meant to be on.
The film stars Jude Law and is directed by Reed Morano. Brown’s role in the film have yet to be identified. Despite the hiatus, Paramount, which is handling worldwide distribution, is keeping the film’s Feb. 22, 2019, release date.
