'Maze Runner' Sequel Pushed to 2018 as Dylan O'Brien Recovers From Injuries

A month after shutting down production due to star Dylan O'Brien's on-set accident, Fox has moved back the release of "The Maze Runner: The Death Cure" by nearly a year.

The studio announced Friday that the third installment of the franchise will now arrive in theaters Jan. 12, 2018, instead of the previously scheduled Feb. 17, 2017.

The 24-year-old O'Brien was hospitalized March 17 after sustaining multiple injuries on the film's Vancouver set when a stunt went wrong and he was struck by a vehicle. Although some early reports suggested the his injuries might not be as severe as initially believed, Fox announced more than a month later that it had halted production indefinitely to give O'Brien time to recuperate.

There's been no indication when filming might resume.
