The Maze Runner creeps towards production with director Wes Ball revealing on his Twitter account that Kaya Scodelario (Wuthering Heights, Clash of the Titans) has joined the movie as Teresa Agnes.
Ball said: ‘Aml Ameen and Kaya Scodelario were mesmerizing on camera today.Oops. Did I just reveal @kscodders is our Teresa? :)’
The film is based on James Dashner’s sci-fi novel, which centres on a group of teenagers who find themselves mysteriously transported to a maze known as the Glade. Kaya Scodelario’s Teresa Agnes is the first female who arrives in the Glade, who befriends the main character, Thomas. Thomas Sangster stars as Newt, alongside Will Poulter as Gally and Aml Ameen as Alby.
The only thing the people in the Glade know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. However the arrival of a girl is a surprise, especially when she delivers a message that could change everything.
Wes Ball is directing from a script co-written by author James Dashner and Noah Oppenheim.
