The star was involved in a horrific accident on the set of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure last month (Mar16) when a stunt went wrong, causing the 24-year-old to be run over by a car.

Dylan, who plays Thomas, the lead character in the dystopian adventure franchise, was admitted to hospital with "severe injuries" in Vancouver, Canada near to where filming was taking place.

However, co-star Giancarlo Esposito, 57, says the injured actor, who suffered numerous broken bones, is recovering extraordinarily well.

"He's healing very well," Giancarlo tells E! Online. "He got put together a couple of weeks ago...He's one tough cookie. He got his bell rung. I would imagine many who witnessed thought that was it... (But) he's a survivor."

According to the U.S. entertainment site, Dylan's colleague revealed filming was scheduled to begin on 15 May (16) and added, "The one good thing about Dylan that I think is going to help him get back on schedule with us very soon is he has a great attitude."

Previously, representatives from the film's studio, 20th Century Fox had indicated that the production would be halted until the actor had made a full recovery, telling U.S. website TheWrap.com, "Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers. Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery."

In the wake of the accident, the movie's director Wes Ball posted on Twitter about his emotional turmoil over the accident.

"Well, it's been a whirlwind of emotions these past few days," he wrote. "I've been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt."

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure is scheduled for release in cinemas across the world next year (17).
