Blake Lively’s spy thriller The Rhythm Section has been given a 2019 release date.
Paramount purchased the rights to The Rhythm Section back in August with Reed Morano, the executive producer for The Handmaids Tale, on board to direct the movie. The screenplay has been written by Mark Burnell with Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli taking up producing duties.
The movie will be arriving on February 22nd, 2019 and is an adaptation of the first book in Burnell’s Stephanie Patrick series of British novels.
Lively will be taking up the starring role, whose character “is on a path of self-destruction after the death of her family in an airplane crash, a flight that she was meant to be on. After discovering that the crash was not an accident, her anger awakens a new sense of purpose and she rises to uncover the truth by adapting the identity of an assassin to track down those responsible. The new, and lethal, Stephanie Patrick is on a mission to fill the void between what she knows and what she is told.”
