“The Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” the third film of “The Maze Runner” franchise, hit a major roadblock when star Dylan O’Brien was hit by a car and severely injured on March 17th. Now, another setback has come as the release for the film has been pushed back from February 17, 2017 to January 12, 2018.
Fox made the announcement on Friday. They had previously pushed back the rest of principle photography twice for the James Dashner adaption. O’Brien, who plays main character Thomas in the film series, is still recovering from his injuries. The first “Maze Runner” film grossed $102 million in the US, while its sequel, “The Scorch Trial,” had lower domestic box office revenue with $82 million.
The film is directed by previous “Maze Runner” director Wes Ball and written by T.S. Nowlin. It also sees the return of stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Ki Hong Lee, Rosa Salazar, and Dexter Darden. Once again, “The Maze Runner: The Death Cure” will now release January 12, 2018.
