Sterling K. Brown Joins Blake Lively Spy Flick Directed By 'The Handmaid's Tale' EP

Sterling K. Brown has joined the Blake Lively spy film, The Rhythm Section as it resumes production.

Production was halted in January after Lively sustained a hand injury in December when she was shooting a stunt. Her surgery did not go as planned the first time and required a longer recovery period.

The actress is said to have made a full recovery and production will resume in Spain this month.

Directed by Reed Morano (The Handmaid's Tale), the film is said to be a modern adaptation of the 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."

Jude Law also stars. Brown's role is not known.

This is another film for Brown in what has been a busy year for him. The This is Us star also has The Predator and Hotel Artemis out this year. He also played a pivotal role in February's Black Panther. 

THR first reported the story.
