“The Maze Runner” is hitting theaters on September 9, 2014, and before the movie has even arrived a sequel has been ordered! “The Scorch Trials” is the next book in the Maze Runner series to get a film order, and that means that the third book, “The Death Cure,” will probably hit theaters as well.
There is also a prequel book titled “The Kill Order,” but it’s unclear if that will become a movie in the future. Only time will tell!
The novels were written by James Dashner, and director Wes Ball told the press about “The Maze Runner” movie:
We don’t answer everything [at the end of the movie] — but that’s the book. Hopefully, they’ll want the next one because we pick up exactly where we left off; you could really watch the movies back to back and it would be one long story.
