Dylan O’Brien Is Fully Recovered From ‘Maze Runner’ Accident, Starring in New ‘American Assassin’ Film

Dylan O’Brien has landed the lead role in the upcoming action thriller film, American Assassin.

The Teen Wolf  star has been out of the spotlight recently after a near-fatal accident took place on the set of The Maze RunnerIn O’Brien’s latest flick, he will play a highly trained CIA black ops recruit opposite Michael Keaton and Taylor Kitsch, but will most likely avoid doing any stunts of his own. The movie, which is based on a 2010 book series by Vince Flynn, is expected to be a huge box office success and could potentially turn into a lucrative franchise.

American Assassin producer revealed that O’Brien’s Maze Runner accident, which has been shrouded in a lot of mystery, was nearly fatal for the young actor:

“He’s all better. It was more than disconcerting. I never saw him in his worst form, but it was described to me. It was really scary. He came close to dying, I’m pretty sure. It was enough to shake your core.”

American Assassin will be O’Brien’s first project since Maze Runner: Death Cure.
