Filming on the new Maze Runner movie suspended because of injuries suffered by star Dylan O'Brien


Filming on the Maze Runner movie has been halted because of injuries suffered by its star Dylan O'Brien.

The 24-year-old was hurt last month while working on Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third and final instalment of the series.

The on-set accident reportedly involved a vehicular stunt in British Columbia during work on the sci-fi movie series, based on author James Dashner's novels.

Twentieth Century Fox said it planned to restart production as soon as possible.

A spokesman for O'Brien - who also stars in television series Teen Wolf - said he was recovering from the incident.

Fox did not comment on whether or not the delay would impact the film's planned February 2017 release.
