'Teen Wolf'' Star Dylan O'Brien Still MIA After Accident? Injured Actor No Plans To Return To 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure', Already Filming 'American Assassin'?
Dylan O'Brien still is not back to the set of either the MTV series "Teen Wolf" or "Maze Runner," following his serious head and facial injuries he suffered over six months ago.
Reports claimed that O'Brien was hurt in mid-March during the filming of "Maze Runner" when he fell off the hood of a car and was dragged behind another car he was harnessed to. Moreover, the production was reported to be on hold pending for his recovery.
"His injuries are very serious, and he needs more time to recover," O'Brien's publicist Jennifer Allen told a trade publication.
Fortunately, reports also confirmed that the 25-year-old American actor is now recovering.
"Teen Wolf" has written the actor out of the upcoming episodes indefinitely with a plot line that has left the character, as well as the actor, missing-in-action.
The writer of the teen thriller series hopes that O'Brien will be able to return to their set in October, but is also prepared to explain his absence in their episodes.
"Teen Wolf" will end in 2017 with its sixth installment.
Meanwhile, "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" was slated for release in February 2017, but it looks unlikely to happen as new sources claimed that Dylan O'Brien is already filming "American Assassin."
The "Teen Wolf" star is already expected to resume filming when "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" restarts production next year. However, O'Brien reportedly seems to have other plans and is now confirmed to be shooting his upcoming thriller film, "American Assassin" with Michael Keaton and Sanaa Lathan.

It was confirmed that O'Brien will work on "American Assassin" ahead of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure." He was already expected to begin working on the film before officially going back to the "Maze Runner" set.
Dylan O'Brien's "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" will resume production in early 2017 before its new release date on January 12, 2018. "American Assassin" is also expected to premiere in 2018.
