'Maze Runner' Finale Pushed Back to 2018 as Dylan O'Brien Continues Recovery
The Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been pushed back almost a year, set to release January 12, 2018 as Dylan O'Brien continues to recover from on-set injuries sustained on March 17.
Fox made the announcement on Friday, a month after a second delay had been announced on production, suggesting O'Brien's injuries were worse than what was first presumed. No time frame has indicated when production will recommence.
The film initially had release set for Feb 17, 2017, with Wes Ball directing. The second film in the franchise fell significantly short on the original's take, and came out a year after that, in 2015. Time will tell how significantly the delay will hurt the film upon release.
