Filming on The Maze Runner began on May 13, 2013 in Louisiana and ended just two months later. Originally, the film was going to be released this past February but in October, the date was rescheduled with a new showing date of September 19, 2014. Even so this film is expected to do well, there has been a big marketing campaign to include social media and television to help get moviegoers excited.

In October 2013, 20th Century Fox announced that it had acquired the rights to The Scorch Trials, the second book following The Maze Runner. Filming of this second movie will reportedly begin sometime this fall and if The Maze Runner captures audiences as critics believe, The Scorch Trials will also have huge box office success. This movie will be written by T.S. Nowlin and directed by Wes Ball.
