Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien has been hospitalised after being injured on the set of the third film in the sci-fi franchise.
The 24-year-old was filming in Vancouver, Canada, for Maze Runner: The Death Cure when the accident, the details of which are yet to be disclosed, occurred.
“Dylan O’Brien 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,” reads a statement released by 20th Century Fox.
While the nature of his injuries remain unclear, fans can rest assured that “he’s going to be okay.”
The series’ writer took to Twitter last night to confirm that O’Brien’s injuries are “not life threatening”…
I just want to let everyone know that yes, Dylan was hurt, but that he’s going to be okay. Not life threatening in any way.— James Dashner (@jamesdashner) March 18, 2016
Production is postponed but certainly not cancelled. All that matters now is that Dylan recovers. We love you, Dylan!!!— James Dashner (@jamesdashner) March 18, 2016
Maze Runner: The Death Cure was due to be in cinemas February 2017 and there’s no word yet on whether the setback will affect the movie’s release date.
