If you were looking forwarded to seeing the third installment of The Maze Runner next February, you might need to wait a little longer.
Production on the movie was suspended back on March 28th when star Dylan O’Brien suffered an injury on the set. The injury was never specified, but it is believe that he fell off the back of a set piece and injured his cheekbone or orbital socket. It was hoped that a little time off would help and production would pick up in a couple weeks again, but Fox has now said that production is on hold indefinitely. “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,” according to 20th Century Fox’s statement. “We wish Dylan a speedy recovery and look forward to restarting production as soon as possible.”
Fox has not yet said anything about the release date (currently February 17th), but the longer it takes O’Brien to recover, the less likely they will meet that date.
