While Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien will not return to television episodes for quite some time, he’s in a really exciting action film about the 2010 BP oil spill that took 11 lives. A true story-based film, Deepwater Horizon is a unique action-packed thriller that will keep fans on the edge of their seats. It is also a brave exposé showing who was allegedly responsible for the spill and why it happened.
Dylan O’Brien’s accident has sidelined the handsome star for over six months, but it is believed that perhaps he will be able to return to the Teen Wolf set in October. Still, he will not be in the earliest episodes. Teen Wolf will not even premiere until November 15. It remains unknown just which episode Dylan will reappear in. It could be after Christmas before fans will see O’Brien’s character Stiles.
Teen Wolf and Dylan O’Brien fans needing their Dylan fix can see O’Brien in theaters starting September 30. It is a great film that offers Dylan the opportunity to really show off his strong suits as an actor and action star. The film’s Toronto International Film Festival premiere received a standing ovation, according to ASZ News.
Deepwater Horizon also stars Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez and John Malkovich as a villainous BP executive. Deepwater Horizon cost $156 million to produce, according to Forbes, and is expected to do well at the box office. The nonfictional plotline places the blame squarely on the shoulders of BP executives who valued the profits over human life or the environment, according to Bloomberg, and all other accounts.
Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien will play the character Caleb in Deepwater Horizon. Caleb worked on the rig and was present during the explosion, so fans can see up close through the eyes of their heartthrob exactly what being on an exploding oil rig is like. It is a heart-stopping ride with no guarantees that Caleb will even survive the ordeal, according to Teen Vogue.
Deepwater Horizon promises to be quite a thriller, as well as a sharp kick in the teeth to BP. Benjamin Lee, a writer for The Guardian is quoted in Bloomberg, giving kudos to filmmakers for taking a stand.
“It’s rare to see a mainstream film with the guts to double as a takedown of a multibillion dollar company.”
Considering Dylan O’Brien’s accident, it may seem extra upsetting and stressful to watch him in danger yet again, but Dylan has survived his real life dangers and will eventually return to work in what will be the sixth and final season of Teen Wolf.
Gina Rodriguez told People about the challenges of portraying real people in a life and death situation. She spoke of a scene in Deepwater Horizon she did with Mark Wahlberg where the characters were trying to escape via a helicopter pad.
“I definitely wanted to make the moment that I have with Mark [Wahlberg] on the helipad. That was really important to me because I have never experienced a moment where I thought I was faced with death, and to try to embody all the different emotions that one might go through – without having to experience it – and then working across from this awesome monster [Wahlberg] was really important to me.”
