THE MAZE RUNNER release date has been pushed back to September 19, 2014, Fox has already optioned its sequel, THE SCORCH TRIALS!
T.S. Nowlin, who adapted THE MAZE RUNNER along with Noah Oppenheim and Grant Myers, will helm the script for the sequel under the supervision of returning director Wes Ball.
The production of THE SCORCH TRIALS still hinges on the success of THE MAZE RUNNER, but this is great news for the series!
According to director Wes Ball and author James Dashner on Twitter, the big screen adaption of THE MAZE RUNNER has been postponed from its February 2014 release date to September, 14th 2014. Here’s what they have had to say.
20th Century Fox’s official website as well as the movie’s official Facebook and Twitter still states February 14th as the release date for the movie, but that could change any moment. As far as we can tell, Fox has not released an official statement stating why the release date has been moved.

And while we’re at it…. Everyone say hi to Ki Hong Lee. He’s our Minho! Greatest cast EVAR!

Aml, 27, is best known for his roles as Trife in the movie Kidulthood and Malcolm in the TV series Harry’s Law. When asked about Aml’s age on twitter, Wes Ball responded with:
@christinaochoa Don’t worry, he plays much younger.

We reported last week that Will, 20, was offered a leading role. I don’t think any of us thought that he would end up playing Gally!
