‘Maze Runner’ Production Delayed Indefinitely Due to Dylan O’Brien’s ‘Very Serious’ Injuries
Dylan O’Brien’s injuries, sustained from his accident on March 17 on the set of his movie The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, are “very serious,” and as a result, production for the movie has been halted indefinitely.
Fox said in a statement on Friday, “The resumption of principal photography on Maze Runer: The Death Cure has been further delayed to allow Dylan O’Brien more time to fully recover from his injuries. We wish Dylan a speedy recovery and look forward to restarting production as soon as possible.”
According to Variety,
Production on the film was initially scheduled to resume May 9, according to a production listing in Vancouver.
“His injuries are very serious and he needs more time to recover,” said O’Brien’s publicist Jennifer Allen. The movie — the third in the Maze Runner trilogy — has been set for a Presidents Day weekend release date of Feb, 17, 2017, but it may have to be pushed back due to the production delay.
