Production on Maze Runner: The Death Cure shut down indefinitely after Dylan O'Brien's injuries are revealed to be serious
Production on the third instalment of The Maze Runner has been halted indefinitely as star Dylan O'Brien recovers from serious injuries.
O'Brien (pictured above in the centre), who starred as Thomas in both The Maze Runner and its sequel Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, was hurt during filming back in March.
Filming was expected to resume in a few weeks after O'Brien recovered, but, according to the Hollywood Reporter, production has now been shut down completely and the cast and crew sent home.
According to sources, the actor was in a harness on top of a moving vehicle when he was pulled off the vehicle unexpectedly and hit by another vehicle. He suffered concussion, facial fractures and lacerations.
Producers 20th Century Fox 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."
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is due to hit cinemas in February 2017, but it is expected this will be delayed.
