The Maze Runner has yet to prove itself as the next Hunger Games, if only because it’s not even set to open for another year. But 20th Century Fox is feeling pretty confident in the film, to the extent that they’ve already begun work on the sequel.
The studio has just optioned the rights to The Scorch Trials, the second installment of James Dashner‘s four-part dystopian YA saga. (Yep, another one.) T.S. Nowlin, who co-wrote the first movie, is set to script, under the supervision of The Maze Runner director Wes Ball. More about the movie and its possible follow-up after the jump.
