‘Maze Runner’ Director Wes Ball Updates Fans About Dylan O’Brien After On-Set Injury
Wes has reassured fans that Dylan will be 'just fine'.
Wes Ball, the director of Maze Runner: The Death Cure and the rest of the trilogy, has spoken out about Dylan O’Brien’s on-set injury, apologising for the grief it’s caused Dylan’s family and friends and telling fans that the actor will be 'just fine'.
The accident is believed to have happened during the filming of a scene involving a vehicle, and has reportedly left Dylan with ‘multiple broken bones’, according to TMZ.
Sharing an image of a seemingly handwritten letter on Twitter, Wes has now responded to the incident, writing: “Well, it’s been a whirlwind of emotions these past few days.
“I’ve been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt. But, ultimately I find myself left with 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’ll be back up and running to finish our adventure together. All the best.”
James Dashner, the author of the trilogy, had previously tweeted: “I just want to let everyone know that yes, Dylan was hurt, but that he’s going to be okay. Not life threatening in any way. Production is postponed but certainly not cancelled. All that matters now is that Dylan recovers. We love you, Dylan!!!”
We’re sending all the love to Dylan and wishing him a very speedy recovery.
