Blake Lively is set to turn spy for the espionage thriller “The Rhythm Section” at EON Productions and IM Global.
James Bond film series producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli will serve as producers on this adaptation of the first of four novels in a series by author Mark Burnell.
The story follows heroine Stephanie Patrick who, after the death of her family in an airplane crash on a flight that she was meant to be on, discovers the crash was not an accident.
She then seeks to uncover the truth by adapting the identity of an assassin to track down those responsible.
Reed Morano (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) will direct with filming to begin later this year. Burnell and Greg Shapiro will executive produce.
