In news coming out of Hollywood this evening, The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien has been hurt whilst filming the third film in the franchise, The Death Cure,
Entertainment Weekly has posted a statement which 20th Century Fox released on the accident which read:
“Dylan O’Brien was injured yesterday while filming Maze Runner: The Death Cure in Vancouver, Canada… He was immediately transferred to a local hospital for observation and treatment. Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers. Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery.”
O’Brien’s publicist, Jennifer Allen, was still awaiting details of his current condition but said early reports indicate he will recover fully.
Deadline adds that O’Brien “apparently fell off the back of a set that was supposed to look like the back of a train and fractured either his cheekbone or orbital socket (still not clear on the details) when he fell on his face.” TMZ adds that O’Brien may have suffered “multiple broken bones”.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is set for release on February 17th, 2017.
