The first Maze Runner, which starred relative newcomers Dylan O’Brien and Ki Hong Lee, grossed over $100M domestically and $238M internationally — well enough to introduce the property and the actors to overseas audiences. With that in pocket, the studio jumped into the second film with The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, which is in post production and is scheduled to bow September 18. Wes Ball directed both and Nowlin will get sole writing credit on the second, and has an exec producer credit. The third is called The Maze Runner: The Death Cure.
