A New Maze Runner Film Will Revive The Franchise

In 2018, Maze Runner: The Demise Treatment wrapped up twentieth Century Fox’s adaptation of James Dashner’s Maze Runner trilogy. However the subsequent chapter within the franchise is now in growth. By way of The Hollywood Reporter, twentieth Century Studios is negotiating with screenwriter Jack Paglen to jot down a brand new Maze Runner movie. Paglen’s earlier credit embody Alien: Covenant and Netflix’s adaptation of Mark Millar and Olivier Coipel’s The Magic Order, which was cancelled earlier than manufacturing started.

THR’s story calls the brand new Maze Runner movie a “reboot,” however revival is the extra correct time period since that is reportedly not a remake of the primary novel. Neither is it a direct sequel to the trilogy. As an alternative, will probably be a brand new story that takes place in the identical world with some connective parts between the most recent movie and the flicks that got here earlier than it. It is just like the way in which that Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes continues the reboot timeline that started in 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien starred within the authentic Maze Runner movies as Thomas, a teen whose reminiscence was erased earlier than he was positioned in an encircled space referred to as the Glade alongside teenage boys who had been identical to him. The one method out of the Glade was by a lethal maze that few of the boys managed to outlive. Thomas’ skill to navigate the maze led him to turn out to be a frontrunner amongst his group as they unraveled the conspiracy behind their imprisonment.

For the reason that new movie will not be a sequel, O’Brien and the opposite forged members from the trilogy aren’t anticipated to return. It is also unclear if the brand new film will probably be based mostly on Dashner’s Maze Cutter novels, that are sequel tales that takes place many years after The Demise Treatment.

Wes Ball, the director of The Maze Runner trilogy, will produce the brand new movie alongside Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lee Stollman, Wyck Godfrey, and Marty Bowen.
