'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' Release Date, Spoilers & Update: Dylan O'Brien Injury Causes Delay To 2018; Film Strays From Books

"Maze Runner: The Death Cure" has had its fair share of delays and fans are patiently waiting for production to finally get back on track. After a few months, it seems filming will finally resume, however, the release date for the film will be delayed.

After the horrible accident that happened on the set of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure," the movie's star Dylan O'Brien who plays Thomas, got terribly injured. According to previous reports, production was filming a scene with moving vehicles and O'Brien was hit. GameNGuide reported that the actor sustained injuries and a few broken bones, which hindered him unable to film. O'Brien's injuries required the actor to take some time off to recover, which was supported by everyone on board.

According to The Christian Times, "Maze Runner: The Death Cure," the third installment of the "Maze Runner" trilogy will be the last, hence it is very much anticipated by fans. Production is slated to resume in February 2017, which was the initial release date for the film. It follows that the premiere of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" will be delayed as well, fans may be looking at a January 2018 release date instead.

As for the plot of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure," reports claim that the movie will revolve around rescuing Minho (Ki Hong Lee) who was taken by WCKD in "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials." It is worth mentioning that Minho's capture was not in the books at all, it only follows that the rescue mission expected to take place in "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" is far from what was in the books.

After all the delays plus considering the horrible accident on set, "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" is finally back on track and fans can mark their calendars for the movie's release date on January 12, 2018. Stay tuned to Jobs & Hire for more updates on your favorite movies and TV shows.
