The Rhythm Section is an international spy thriller that follows the story of Stephanie Patrick, a woman who seeks to uncover the truth behind a plane crash that killed her family.[2] Patrick was also meant to be on the flight. After she discovers that the crash was not accidental, she embarks on a mission to track down those responsible by assuming the identity of an assassin.[4]



On August 16, 2017, it was reported that Paramount Pictures had acquired the rights to the film.[1] It has a production budget of around $50 million and is produced by EON Productions, the film company known for producing the James Bond franchise.[2]

Principal photography on the film began in December 2017 in Dublin, Ireland.[5] Production was halted temporarily after Lively got injured on the film set, with filming scheduling to begin again in June.[6] Sterling K. Brown joined the film as production resumed in Spain in the summer of 2018.[7] In July 2018 the film was shot in Almería with Jude Law and Blake Lively.[8][9]


It was originally scheduled to be released February 22, 2019 but now is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2019.[10]
