The Directors Guild of Canada has removed The Maze Runner: The Death Cure from its list of “Current Productions” which includes listings for all television and movie shoots underway or planned to start in the Vancouver area within the next few months. Prior to Friday, The Death Cure had been on the list each week for several months.
The DGC’s removal comes a week after actor Dylan O’Brien was hospitalized after falling from one of the production’s sets in Cache Creek, British Columbia.
Little official information about the accident has been released but James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner books, gave a few more details to fans at the Paris Book Fair recently. “He’s going to be totally fine. He kind of banged up his face,” Dashner said while touching his right cheek, “but he’ll still be pretty, don’t worry.”
Dashner says the movie adaptation of The Death Cure is on hold for a while. “They’ll probably start filming again maybe in a couple of months.”
The writer says O’Brien remains in good spirits, “Even on the day he was hurt, he was joking and laughing. You know how Dylan is. He’s tough and he has a great sense of humor and he’s going to be totally fine.”
