Also during press day, director Wes Ball explains to Collider what he has in mind for the third and final movie, Maze Runner: The Death Cure. One major shift from the book is that supposedly, The Death Cure will take place approximately a year after the events in The Scorch Trials.
“This next one will be cool because we’re gonna cut maybe a year later. Yeah, so it’ll be cool. Some things have happened off screen, which is gonna make the movie feel even bigger.”
Ball also stated they’re set for a February shoot and then apparently release it the following February in 2017.
“We’re working on the third one right now, working to make it even better and even cooler, and doing the same thing we did on this last one where it’s a different movie. It’s gonna be a different kind of an engine, a different kind of genre almost and a different sort of color palette and terrain. It’s gonna be cool. It’s gonna be very, very cool I think.”
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials comes out in theaters on September 18, 2015.
