Scriptwriter Noah Oppenheim is working on the screenplay for now.
Here's the trailer of the Maze Runner book:
THE MAZE RUNNER
"When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they 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.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers."
Sounds like a tame version of Cube... Well, I don't mind another science-fiction movie, so I guess I'll Still go watch the Maze Runner when it comes out in theaters.
