'Maze Runner’ shoot delayed further due to star Dylan O'Brien’s injuries
Principal photography on Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been shut down for the foreseeable future to allow star Dylan O’Brien more time to recover from injuries he suffered while shooting an action scene in March.
20th Century Fox said in a statement Friday that it looks forward to restarting production as soon as possible, but it did not comment on weather the delay would affect the film’s planned February 2017 release date, the Associated Press reports.
O’Brien, 24, was filming the third and final installment of the series when he unexpectedly was pulled off the top of one vehicle and was hit by another, which caused a concussion, facial fracture and lacerations.
“His injuries are very serious, and he needs more time to recover,” said O’Brien’s rep, Jennifer Allen.
