With the rocketing success of The Maze Runner this opening weekend, 20th Century Fox has announced that the sequel, [Maze Runner 2: The Scorch Trials](movie:1142567), will hit theaters on September 18th, 2015.
The Maze Runner opened this weekend with a strong 32.5 Million-dollar debut. The series' director, Wes Ball, said earlier this month that the sequel was beginning its pre-production stage:
We’ve got stages, we’ve got crews coming in, Dylan [O’Brien] will be back in a few weeks, we’re building sets, and the script is being written. It’s a bit of a race this time because we’re cautiously optimistic, but we’re feeling excited we’re about to do something that’s way more sophisticated, way more grown up, and really set up a saga here.
