20th Century Fox unveiled new footage and cast at Comic-Con on Friday for The Maze Runner, which bows September 19. It’s based on James Dashner’s bestselling YA novel about youngsters marooned on a maze-ridden island. Wes Ball directed and Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie Sangster and Aml Ameen star. Noah Oppenheim, Grant Myers and T.S. Nowlin adapted the book. The pic had been set for a February 2014 release but it was pushed back. That shouldn’t be an indication of unhappiness though — Fox already exercised the option to buy The Scorch Trials, the second book in Dashner’s four-book series. So is this looking franchise-worthy?
