LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The search for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing has halted production for now of a movie starring Louisville's Jennifer Lawrence.

A spokesman for Sony says the film's producers are complying with officials who have requested that people remain indoors; the manhunt has virtually shut down the city, with mass transit suspended and businesses requested not to open.

The movie, "American Hustle," is about an FBI sting operation in the late seventies.  It reunites Lawrence with her "Silver Linings Playbook" co-star Bradley Cooper and director David O. Russell.  Lawrence won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in that film. She was also nominated for "Winter's Bone" in 2011.
