Maze Runner: Dylan O'Brien injuries prompt later release for Death Cure

Posted on

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is still feeling the aftershock of Dylan O’Brien’s on-set injuries. After an earlier delay, Fox has pushed the film’s release again from Feb. 17, 2017 to Jan. 12, 2018.

O’Brien was hospitalized in March after an incident during production on the Maze Runner sequel. Writer James Dashner tweeted that filming was postponed but not canceled as the actor recovered. Fox eventually shut down production indefinitely and released a statement. “We wish Dylan a speedy recovery and look forward to restarting production as soon as possible,” it read in part.

There’s currently no announced date for when production will start up again.

Elsewhere, Fox announced other release dates for titles Morgan (Sep. 2), Keeping Up With the Joneses (Oct. 21), Rules Don’t Apply (Nov. 11), and Red Sparrow (Nov. 10, 2017). Alita: Battle Angel, which recently cast Rosa Salazar in the lead role, was also scheduled for release on July 20, 2018. 

Fox further shifted around some release dates, moving Murder on the Orient Express to Nov. 22, 2017, Predator to Feb. 9, 2018, and those two untitled Marvel movies to March 2, 2018 and June 29, 2018, respectively.
