Exciting news for Maze Runner fans! The popular dystopian series is set for a thrilling reboot, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. After six years since the conclusion of the original film trilogy, 20th Century Studios is gearing up to revisit the Maze Runner universe with a fresh perspective.

According to THR, the reboot will take a new direction, distinct from the original trilogy. Jack Palgen, known for his work on Alien: Covenant and Transcendence, is slated to pen the script for this exciting revival. Wes Ball, the mastermind behind the Maze Runner trilogy, will be onboard as a producer for the reboot. Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman are a part of the production team for this reboot alongside Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill.

While specific plot details are being kept under wraps, sources close to the project suggest that the reboot will serve as a continuation of the original story, rather than a direct retelling or sequel. This approach promises a captivating expansion of this exciting universe.

For those unfamiliar, The Maze Runner is based on James Dashner’s captivating sci-fi novels. The story revolves around a group of young individuals with no memory, trapped in a perilous maze filled with mechanical beasts. Their journey unravels the secrets of a clandestine government organisation behind their predicament.

The Maze Runner saga kicked off in 2014 with its first film—starring Dylan O’Brien as the main character Thomas—which quickly became a sensation, drawing audiences into its mysterious and thrilling world. This successful debut was followed by Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials in 2015, deepening the story’s intrigue and suspense.

Finally, the trilogy concluded with Maze Runner: The Death Cure in 2018, offering a riveting and satisfying resolution to the epic journey of Thomas and his friends. Each instalment left an indelible mark on fans, making the prospect of a reboot both exciting and nostalgic for followers of the franchise.

If you haven’t watched the Maze Runner trilogy of film yet, we highly recommend that you do so as they are incredibly filmed and have an entirely engaging narrative. We also highly recommend that you read the books too.
