Fox has pushed the release date for "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" to 2018.

As franchise star Dylan O'Brien continues to recover from injuries he sustained in an on-set accident last March, the film studio moved the release date for the movie back by nearly a year to Jan. 12, 2018, Deadline reported.

Originally set for release on Feb. 17, 2017, production on the film was temporarily stopped on March 18 after O'Brien was injured during the filming of a stunt. The production was then shut down indefinitely on April 29 to give the "Teen Wolf" actor more time to completely heal. No date for when production will resume has been announced.

A WorkSafeBC report, obtained by iNFOnews.ca last month, revealed that O'Brien was injured on March 17 while filming a stunt where he had to transport himself from one moving vehicle to another vehicle in motion.

"An action sequence was being filmed for a motion picture. This young worker was attached to a vehicle by a harness, lanyard and overhead truss system when he climbed onto the back (of) another vehicle. As the vehicles slowed, the trailing vehicle the worker was anchored to slowed more rapidly than the vehicle the worker climbed onto," read the report.

While WorkSafeBC didn't mention the name of the worker hurt in the accident, the incident involving O'Brien was the only accident on a movie set in British Columbia that month.

On its new date, the Wes Ball-directed film will open opposite Paramount's animated film "Sherlock Gnomes." On its old date, it would have faced off against Sony's "The Dark Tower," Warner Bros.' "Fist Fight" and Universal's "The Great Wall."

Horror movie "A Cure for Wellness," which had been set to open on March 24, 2017, takes "Maze Runner: The Death Cure's" original release date.
