    Principal photography on "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" has been further delayed to allow star Dylan O'Brien more time to recover from injuries he suffered during the shoot in mid-March.

    20th Century Fox said in a statement Friday that it looks forward to restarting production as soon as possible.

    O'Brien stars in the dystopian sci-fi franchise based on author James Dashner's novels. He was filming the third and final installment in the series in British Columbia when he was injured.

    A rep for the actor confirmed that the 24-year-old is recovering.

    Fox did not comment on whether or not the delay would impact the film's planned February 2017 release. 

    O'Brien is also known for his role on TV's "Teen Wolf" series.
