‘Maze Runner’ Sequel Production Remains Shut Down By Dylan O’Brien Injuries

Series star’s injuries stemming from March accident ”are very serious and he needs more time to recover,“ his rep says

The production shutdown on “The Maze Runner: The Death Cure” will continue for the foreseeable future as series star Dylan O’Brien‘s onset injuries are more severe than initially thought, TheWrap has learned.

“The resumption of principal photography on ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ has been further delayed to allow Dylan O’Brien to fully recover from his injuries,” a Fox spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement. “We wish Dylan a speedy recovery and look forward to restarting production as soon as possible.”

“His injuries are very serious and he needs more time to recover,” O’Brien’s publicist Jennifer Allen said.

Back in March, O’Brien was filming a scene involving a car on the set of “Maze Runner” and there was an accident. He suffered multiple broken bones and was rushed to the hospital in British Columbia, Canada.

This film is the third in the successful franchise. The second movie, titled “Scorch Trials,” hit theaters in September and grossed $81.6 million at the box office. The first film has earned $102 million since its debut in 2014.

“Maze Runner: The Death Cure” was originally slated for release in February 2017, but it is not known at this time if it will still be able to make that date.
