The Maze Runner, shot in and around Baton Rouge last year, doesn’t hit U.S. theaters until this Friday, but it is already performing well in the international market. Check out this Variety article for more info!
Directed by first-time director Wes Ball from a script by Noah Oppenheim, The Maze Runner stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Will Poulter. The film follows “Thomas” (O’Brien), who wakes up and finds himself trapped in a massive maze with a group of boys. He has no memory of the outside world. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze, can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape.
