On March 18, Dylan O'Brien was injured while on the set of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure in Vancouver, Canada. He suffered from a concussion, facial fracture and lacerations following a mistake during a motorcycle stunt. Production had to come to a halt while he makes a recovery, but O'Brien has been healing well and will return to set in six weeks.
E! chatted with O'Brien's former co-star Giancarlo Esposito, who assured us that the 24-year-old is already on the mend:
“He’s healing very well. He got put together a couple of weeks ago… He’s one tough cookie.
"He got his bell rung. I would imagine many who witnessed thought that was it… [But] he’s a survivor. The one good thing about Dylan that I think is going to help him get back on schedule with us very soon is he has a great attitude.”
Director Wes Ball took to Twitter to express similar sentiments:
The Maze Runner: The Death Cure continues the story of 2014’s The Maze Runner and 2015’s Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. It co-stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rosa Salazar, Ki Hong Lee and Dexter Darden.
The film is set for a February 17, 2017 release, but I have a hunch it might be pushed back to accommodate for the production delays. Keep resting up and get better, Dylan!
