Dylan O’Brien’s ‘Maze Runner: Death Cure’ Release Pushed Back to 2018

Fox has moved back its release for “The Maze Runner: The Death Cure” by nearly a year to Jan. 12, 2018, as star Dylan O’Brien recovers from his March 17 injuries after an on-set car accident.

Fox made the announcement Friday, a month after disclosing that resumption of principal photography on “Maze Runer: The Death Cure” had been delayed for a second time to allow O’Brien more time to fully recover from his injuries. The studio has not revealed when production will re-start.

The movie — the third in the Maze Runner trilogy — had been set for a Presidents Day weekend release date of Feb, 17, 2017. Wes Ball is directing the film. O’Brien’s character is on a mission to find a cure to the “Flare,” a deadly disease.

O’Brien was hit by a car and suffered multiple injuries on March 17 on the set in British Columbia. The 24-year-old actor was taken to a local hospital for observation and treatment following the accident.

The 2014 original grossed $102 million in U.S. receipts, and 2015 follow-up “The Scorch Trials” tallied $82 million in domestic box office.

Fox made several other release date announcements Friday, including dating “Alita: Battle Angel” for July 20, 2018. Rosa Salazar, who starred in “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” has been tapped to play the female lead in “Battle Angel” with James Cameron producing and Robert Rodriguez directing.
