The Maze Runner
"It’s really gritty, it’s a lot grittier than I think people are going to expect it to be," "The Maze Runner" and "Teen Wolf" star Dylan O'Brien told Collider last summer about "The Maze Runner." "What’s funny is that, in terms of subject matter, something like 'The Hunger Games' is much more viciously violent than this story is but when you see the movies though, it’s interesting how — I think this is going to surprise people with how dirty and dark it is." But the bigger question is not whether or not it can match the intensity of "The Hunger Games," but capture a similar audience.

It looks like we weren't the only ones who've had eyes on Kaya Scodelario. An actress we put on our list of 15 Breakout Artists To Watch From The 2013 Sundance Film Festival, she broke out on the UK series "Skins," took small parts in "Moon" and "Clash Of The Titans" and then led Andrea Arnold's experimental "Wuthering Heights." She hit Park City in January with "Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes" (taking over a part originally intended for Rooney Mara), and now she's bagged a franchise to call her own.

“The Maze Runner” is one of the various young-adult book franchises that Hollywood is attempting to make into their latest big-screen cash cow. But for every "Harry Potter," "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games," there’s a "Golden Compass," "Cirque Du Freak" or "Eragon," so it’s a difficult business making sure that great material survives the transition from the page to the screen. Fox thought they had this franchise in safe hands with “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke signed on to direct the first installment, but it seems that at some point between now and December 2010 she left to pursue other projects.
