Broadcast this Tuesday evening on TF1, “Le Labyrinthe 3: Le Remède mortel” has the particularity of having seen its shooting interrupted for nearly a year. In question: a serious injury of its main actor Dylan O’Brien.
If a filming happens to be interrupted for a few days or even a few weeks, it is however not very common for the cameras to go off for almost a year. Yet this is what happened to the film Le Labyrinthe 3: Le Remède mortel, broadcast this Tuesday evening on TF1, whose production was stopped from March 2016 to March 2017.
The reason for this long-term interruption? Dylan O’Brien was seriously injured while filming a scene in the film in Vancouver. PHit by a car, the young American, suffering from multiple fractures, was immediately transferred to hospital.
“I just want you to know that yes, Dylan was injured, but everything is going to be fine for him “, then declared James Dashner, the author of the novels Labyrinth. “His life is not in danger. The shoot is postponed, but certainly not canceled. All that matters now is for Dylan to get well. We love you Dylan !!!“
Proof that Dylan O’Brien’s injury was serious, it will therefore be necessary to wait nearly a year for the filming of Labyrinth 3 to resume, in March 2017, in South Africa. The theatrical release of the feature film has logically been postponed by nearly a year, the third opus of the trilogy being unveiled in France in February 2018.
In 2020, at the microphone of Variety, Dylan O’Brien had returned to this accident which he will visibly keep the consequences all his life. “Even today, if I am on a set and I do a stunt, if there is action, I am slightly irritable”, declared the one who is currently playing the Netflix movie Love and Monsters. “There is a degree of anxiety in me which I don’t think will ever go away.”
