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.
