The most recent trailer for the adaptation of the young adult action adventure novel The Maze Runner looked pretty damn impressive, and we're excited to see where this intriguing sci-fi tale ventures, especially after seeing concept art for the hopeful sequel at Comic-Con last month. Now a featurette has surfaced online introducing us to The Gladers, the group of boys (Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter and more, eventually joined by Kaya Scodelario) who have been stuck in the area called The Glade, trying to figure out if they're any way out of the maze that connects to their grassy home. This is a great young cast who actually camped out in the big wooded set in New Orleans to build up camaraderie before shooting. Watch!
Here's the new featurette for Wes Ball's The Maze Runner from YouTube:
The Maze Runner marks the feature directorial debut of Wes Ball (of Ruin), 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 September 19th, 2014.
