First Look: Sci-Fi 'Maze Runner' Adaptation Starring Dylan O'Brien
As we await young adult adaptations like The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Divergent, both with female leads trying to capitalize on The Hunger Games audience, another film based on a popular young adult novel puts the spotlight on the boys. The Maze Runner is based on the book of the same name by James Dashner and follows Dylan O'Brien as a teen who wakes up in an industrual elevator not knowing who he is. Trapped in the center of a maze with a community of other boys in a mysterious place called The Glade, the only way out is to navigate the huge maze which changes nightly and is full of creatures called Grievers. Now we have the first photos from the film which is currently in production in Louisiana. Look!

The Maze Runner marks the feature directorial debut of Wes Ball, working from a script by Noah Oppenheim and James Dashner (who wrote the book on which the film is based). The story follows teen Thomas (Dylan O'Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is, only to learn he's been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all while establishing a functioning society in what they call The Glade. Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter and more star in the film arriving on February 14th, 2014.
