Maze Runner: The Death Cure production shut down after star injured on set

No word on when he'll be released from hospital

Production on Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been shut down following an accident on set that left star Dylan O'Brien seriously injured, reports Variety.

O'Brien, 24, was shooting a scene for the third installment in the young adult franchise when he was hit by a car, leaving him with multiple injuries, according to Variety. O'Brien was immediately taken to a nearby hospital in Victoria, British Columbia.

In a statement to Variety, Fox said that O'Brien was being treated for his injuries and would be staying at the hospital for observation.

"Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers," Fox said in the statement. "Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery."

Maze Runner: The Death Cure follows O'Brien's character, Tom, as he tries to track down the cure for a deadly plague known as the "Flare." The movie is scheduled to be released on Feb. 17, 2017, and Fox hasn't announced if that will change.
