Catherine Hardwicke In Talks To Direct MAZE RUNNER For Fox
It looks like Catherine Harkwicke is continuing her direction of young adult novels turned films. The Twilight director is in negotiations with Fox to direct MAZE RUNNER, based on James Dashner’s sci-fi book.
The Maze Runner is first in a trilogy about a boy named Thomas who wakes up one day in “the Glade” with no recollection of how he got there. In fact, Thomas doesn’t remember anything except his own first name. The Glade is home to other boys and is surrounded by a tall stone wall that protects the children from “Grievers”. Grievers live in the maze that surrounds the walls of the Glade.
Author James Dashner is expected to adapt the screenplay.
The Maze Runner series has been compared to Suzanne Collin’ Hunger Games which Lionsgate is brining to the big screen.
