[The Maze Runner](movie:575895) the latest YA film to hit our screens, has been doing so well in the U.S, that's it's already set to start production of a sequel (which starts very soon) and has a release date of September 18, 2015, for next year. With that sorted, comes the important task of casting, and it's recently been revealed that main character in the sequel, Brenda, has been cast. And it's none other than 'American Horror Story' actress, Rosa Salazar.
That'll be because you have no idea who she is. For those that don't know, Salazar had a recurring role on [American Horror Story](series:206668) Season 1, and ended up being one of the ghosts in the "Murder House".
In the books, Brenda is a strong character that
Thomas meets during The Scorch Trials. Wicked's second test for the Gladers, after they reveal the state of the outside world to them, and have them enter Phase 2 of their trials.
In addition to Rosa Salazar as Brenda, 'Game of Thrones' actor, Aiden Gillen, who plays Littlefinger in the hit HBO show, has officially signed on to play the role of Janson, aka "Rat-Man". A perfect casting choice in my opinion, as has been the case for all the roles so far.
The Maze Runner opens in UK Cinemas on October 10th!
If you haven't already seen it, and it's out in your country, I urge you to watch it. It's a brilliant adaptation, and an even better standalone film. Regardless of whether or not you've read the books, you'll love the film, so go see it!
