‘Maze Runner: Death Cure’ release pushed to 2018

LOS ANGELES: “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” release has been pushed back to January 2018, almost a year after its initial opening date, as star Dylan O’Brien recovers from on-set injuries.


Fox has announced that the third movie in the “Maze Runner” trilogy has been delayed from its February 2017 release.

It comes as O’Brien recovers from injuries after a “very serious” on-set car accident on March 18.

Production was shut down indefinitely after a prop car reportedly struck the actor, and it is unclear when it will resume again.

The second film in the trilogy, “The Scorch Trails”, was released last year, following the first movie in 2014.
