At the beginning of last December we announced that ‘The Maze Runner’, the first book in James Dashner’s sci-fi trilogy, will be directed by ‘Twilight’ helmer Catherine Hardwicke, whom is currently in post-production with her Amanda Seyfried starring ‘Red Riding Hood’ project. But now we have learned that Noah Oppenheim will be providing the script. Noah is currently working on an ‘Untitled Snabba Cash Remake’ that is set to star teen heart-throb Zac Efron but has no other writing credits to his name. Check out the full plot details below.
“Thomas, who wakes up to find himself in a square elevator which brings him up to the top. He is greeted by a group of boys who pull him out into their surroundings. Thomas learns that all these boys live in a place called the Glade. The Glade is surrounded by tall, stone walls with four massive doors in the center of each wall. These doors close each night to protect them from the monsters that live beyond the Glade’s walls. The monsters live in a place called the Maze which surrounds the walls around the Glade. These monsters are called Grievers which sting the Gladers if they can. The Gladers then undergo the Changing, a painful process which people can survive if given the serum in time, and come out with side effects.”
