'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' to Restart Production Around Original Release Date
Better late than never. And better safe than sorry. And better luck this time! "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" has been lost in its own maze since star Dylan O'Brien was seriously injured during filming. That happened back in mid-March 2016 and shut down production. Production was initially meant to resume shortly afterward, but O'Brien's "very serious" injuries led to further delays. The film's release date was moved back a year, from February 17, 2017 to January 12, 2018.
But now, Deadline reports, production will start up again this February 2017. So they'll resume filming right around the time they were originally hoping to release the movie.
In late April, The Hollywood Reporter quoted a report from WorkSafeBC to described O'Brien's injuries as a "concussion, facial fracture and lacerations." He was reportedly in harness on top of a moving vehicle when he was unexpectedly pulled off that vehicle and hit by another one. According to Deadline, O'Brien was said to "have fractured either his cheekbone or orbital socket after a stunt sequence went awry."
O'Brien was recently seen in public for the first time in a while when a Jamba Juice employee snapped a photo with him. He looked good, so let's hope things stay good into 2017 and 2018.
