‘Maze Runner’ Sequel to Hit Theaters in 2015

A sequel to “The Maze Runner” will arrive in theaters next September, 20th Century Fox announced on the heels of the first film’s impressive debut.

The follow-up to the young adult hit, “The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials” races into theaters on Sept. 18, 2015. There’s potential for more “Maze Runners” beyond that. Author James Dashner also penned another sequel, “The Death Cure,” that could be adapted for the big screen at a future date.

“The Maze Runner” topped the weekend box office with $32.5 million domestically and pulled in an additional $37.6 million overseas. It flew past two other new wide releases, “A Walk Among the Tombstones” and “This Is Where I Leave You,” to emerge as the highest grossing film.

The sequel will face stiffer competition from action-adventure “Everest,” which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, and an untitled Whitey Bulger biopic with Johnny Depp.
