Production of 'Maze Runner' indefinitely delayed

Update : 02 May 2016, 07:51 PM

E! News recently confirmed that the production of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been indefinitely delayed due to the injuries inflicted on actor Dylan O'Brien; the cause being an accident suffered on set on March 18.

The following statement was released by Fox, explaining their decision to stop filming. They said, 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.”

Initially expected to hit theatres on February 17, 2017, it is now uncertain whether the release date will remain the same due to the recent delays.

Shortly after the accident, a report by WorkSafeBC claimed that a “worker” fell off his motorcycle during filming, and suffered a “concussion, a facial fracture, and lacerations.” WorkSafeBC opted to not identify O'Brien in the report in order to protect his identity. The report added, “The worker struck his head on a pavement and temporarily lost consciousness.”

The author of Maze Runner, James Dashner, tried his best to keep fans calm immediately after the news of the accident broke out. He wrote on Twitter, “I just want to let everyone know that yes, Dylan was hurt, but that he's going to be okay. Not life threatening in any way. Production is postponed but certainly not cancelled.” He concluded, “All that matters now is that Dylan recovers. We love you, Dylan!”

O'Brien's co-star in Maze Runner, Giancarlo Esposito, revealed to E! News early in April that he was “healing very well” and that he's “one tough cookie.”
