Dylan O'Brien heading back to film The Maze Runner in 2017

Production on The Maze Runner sequel is starting up again in February (17), nearly a year after its star Dylan O'brien was seriously injured on set.

The Teen Wolf actor was shooting a car scene for the third installment in the series, titled The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, in Vancouver, Canada in March (16), when the stunt went wrong and the 24-year-old was run over.


O'Brien, who plays Thomas, the lead character in the post-apocalyptic franchise, was admitted to a nearby hospital with serious injuries, including multiple broken bones. The incident prompted studio bosses at Fox to shut down the shoot indefinitely and delay the film's planned 2017 release, moving the premiere date to January, 2018.


Now that O'Brien is well on the road to recovery, he and the cast and crew of the film will be heading back to work in February to finish filming the rest of the movie, according to Deadline.


The Maze Runner: The Death Cure is directed by Wes Ball and adapted from the popular book series of the same name by author James Dashner.
