American Hustle Christian Bale, David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” is expected to resume production Monday after a brief break due to the Boston manhunt, a Sony rep told Deadline.

Filming of the 70s-set corruption pic was suspended on Friday when police were on a city-wide search for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev.

The production first started on March 8 in Worcester, Mass., and moved to the Boston area Wednesday but it was temporarily halted on Friday.

With the capture of Tsarnaev in nearby Watertown that evening, Russell and “Hustle” stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Christian Bale and Amy Adams can get back to work.

During the film’s temporary shutdown Cooper paid a visit to one of the bombing victims who lost both his legs below the knees in the blast. Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots joined Cooper and posted a pic on Twitter smiling near the bedside of survivor Jeff Bauman.
