After production on the third Maze Runner film was delayed a year due to a serious on-set accident, it seems fans will have to wait a little longer once more to see The Death Cure.
A recent reshuffle by 20th Century Fox has seen Wes Ball’s third Maze Runner outing shifted back to February 9th, 2018 from its earlier January release date, so fans will want to adjust their calendars accordingly.
Maze Runner 3 was originally set to come out this year, but star Dylan O’Brien was badly hurt during the initial stages of filming and the studio managed to find enough healing time for the actor to recover fully before getting back to work on the sequel.
Dexter Darden, who co-stars in the movie as Frypan, marked the gang’s return to the Maze Runner universe with a cheery Instagram post last month:
In The Death Cure, O’Brien’s Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure to a deadly disease known as the Flare. The film also stars Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito and Barry Pepper, and is the final movie in the franchise.
