The Maze Runner is one of the young adult adaptations that’s rushing to fill the hole left by the end of Twilight, and on the evidence of the first piece of concept art that’s been released (via EW), it’s going to look pretty cool. It’s certainly an impressive looking stone labyrinth.
Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien will portray Thomas, who wakes up in a strange place known as The Glade, with no recollection of how he got there. He must work together with a group of teenagers, who also don’t remember how they ended up in there, to figure a way out – every morning a door opens and they attempt to figure out the riddle of the maze that lies beyond. Things get even more complex when the first girl (Kaye Scodelario) turns up in The Glade, with a message that could change everything.
Commenting on the image, “It was for me, really. I like writing images,” says director Wes Ball, who previously worked as a special effects designer. “I started daydreaming about what it’s like to be at those doors and looking up at those walls.”
Thomas Sangster, Will Poulter, Aml Ameen, and Kaya Scodelario are co-starring. A February 14th, 2014 release date has already set.
