The highly anticipated "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" has been going through several difficulties since last year. Production was halted when lead star Dylan O'Brien suffered an injury on the sequel's set in Canada in March 2016. The film was then moved to a February 2018 premiere. Now it looks like "Maze Runner 3" is getting pushed back for a later release date. Could the Wes Ball movie possibly be struggling to keep up with its current production schedule?

Fans were heartbroken when it was reported that Dylan O'Brien was involved in a car accident on the set of "Maze Runner 3". The extent of O'Brien's injuries were being kept secret, leading to speculations that the sequel will be canceled or that the "Teen Wolf" Season 6 actor would no longer return in "The Death Cure". Luckily, it looks like O'Brien has recovered and has resumed filming in the new set in South Africa, as per CeleBeat. But is it possible that the Wes Ball movie is going through some production difficulties?

Coming Soon has recently reported that "Maze Runner 3" will have a later release date. Although the Dylan O'Brien movie was initially scheduled for a January 12, 2018, premiere, it has now been pushed back to February 9, 2018. This would mean that fans will need to wait for almost a year before the sequel will premiere next year. But what has caused the delay for "The Death Cure"?

There are speculations that Dylan O'Brien's own schedule could be part of the problem because the "American Assassin" star might be getting more projects on his plate. However, it is also possible that 20th Century Fox is moving the premiere back closer to Valentine's Day. Hopefully, this will be the last delay for "Maze Runner 3" since fans have been waiting for the sequel for a very long time.
