Director Wes Ball addresses ‘Maze Runner’ star Dylan O’Brien’s on-set injury


Wes Ball, the director of The Maze Runner films, has updated the public with a statement regarding Dylan O’Brien’s injury on set of The Death Cure (the third film in the franchise). Multiple sources have reported that Dylan fell off the back of portion of the film set that was meant to look like a train, hit his head, and fractured the cheekbone and/or orbital bone in his face when he landed. Currently, Dylan is in the hospital, but will make a full recovery. He did not get hit or run over by a car like was previously reported! Wes took to Twitter with a note, which he shared in an image:

The image above reads, “Well, it’s been a whirlwind of emotions the past few days. I’ve been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt, but ultimately I find myself left with just a deep love and respect for Dylan. He is one tough cookie. I’m sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew. It’s scary seeing your friend get hurt, but fortunately, Dylan is going to be just fine. After a few weeks of rest and recovery he will be back up and running to finish our adventure together. All the best.”

Wishing all the best for Dylan and the production crew!
