Third ‘Maze Runner’ Film Delayed Indefinitely Due to Dylan O’Brien’s Injuries


Dylan O’Brien’s injuries are much worse than first thought.

News broke in March that actor Dylan O’Brien had been injured on the set of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure. At the time, TMZ reported that he had suffered “serious injuries” whilst filming a scene involving a vehicle.

THR now has more on the story. The outlet’s sources are reporting that O’Brien “was in a harness on top of a moving vehicle when he was pulled off the vehicle unexpectedly and hit by another vehicle.” They also quote a WorkSafeBC report as stating that his injuries included a “concussion, facial fracture and lacerations.”

If you’re not starring in a movie and you did have a serious car accident then its best to seek a lawyers advice. As well you should insure your vehicle is insured so it can be covered for any loss or damage when involved in the accident, there are several insurance companies located in and around your area but if its van insurance from the UK you’re after specifically, then Money Expert are an ideal company to see what types of cover they can offer you.

The incident clearly resulted in pretty serious injuries, and O’Brien is still yet to fully recover. As a result, production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been shut down for the time being, with no word as to when shooting will continue. It’s unlikely the third film in the franchise will be ready in time for its planned U.S. release date of February 17, 2017.

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

Fox also released a statement: “The resumption of principal photography on Maze Runner: 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.”

It’s completely understandable that Fox decide to hold production for the foreseeable future. It’s more important to focus on O’Brien’s health and recovery than it is to rush back into shooting, and the fact that O’Brien is the franchise lead obviously holds importance as well.

“I’m sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew,” director Wes Ball had tweeted shortly after the accident. “It’s scary seeing your friend get hurt, but fortunately, Dylan is going to be just fine.”

We’ll keep you informed.
