The Maze Runner Adaptation Gets a New Screenwriter

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
More information about the book

A month or so ago we reported that Twilight director Caterine Hardwicke had signed on to direct the film adaptation of the young adult thriller The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

At the time, Dashner himself was reportedly writing the screenplay. Now the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Noah Oppenheim, who most recently wrote the English language screenplay for the remake of the Swedish thriller Snabba Cash, will adapt the book.

The Maze Runner is the first in what is expected to be a trilogy of novels featuring a teenager named Thomas, who in the opening chapter wakes up surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade, a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls—a maze from which escape seems impossible.
