Kaya Scoledario joins <strong><em>The Maze Runner</em></strong>
The story centers on a group of teenagers who find themselves mysteriously transported to a maze known as the Glade. Kaya Scodelario's Teresa Agnes is the first female who arrives in the Glade, who befriends the main character Thomas. Thomas Sangster stars as Newt, alongside Will Poulter as Gally and Aml Ameen as Alby. Here is the official description of the novel.

"When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade-a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up-the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind."

Wes Ball is directing from a script co-written by author James Dashner and Noah Oppenheim. It isn't known when production will begin.
