The 24-year-old was brought to a local hospital in British Columbia, where the movie is currently filming. “Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers,” a spokesperson for Fox said. “Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery.”
TMZ reported that O’Brien sustained injuries, which are described as “severe,” after “something went wrong” and he was run over by a car. He reportedly suffered multiple broken bones.
O’Brien plays Thomas in the Maze Runner series, based on the novels from author James Dashner. The first movie, The Maze Runner, was released in 2014, with sequel The Scorch Trials landing in 2015. They were both hits and a third entry, Death Cure, is slated to come out in February 2017.
Whether or not the movie will move out further as a result of O’Brien’s accident remains to be seen.
