Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien‘s injuries from an accident on set back in March are said to be worse than first thought, with production on the film pushed back indefinitely.
The announcement comes after O’Brien’s publicist told the media that her client’s injuries are worst than first anticipated.
“His injuries are very serious, and he needs more time to recover,” she said.

Initially, production was set to return on May 9, with Fox believing that timeline was suitable in conjunction with the seriousness of the 24-year-old’s injuries. At this stage, production has been shut down”for the foreseeable future”, with cast and crew given an extended period off.
