Nowlin. The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Will Poulter, and Patricia Clarkson.
Is Maze Runner 3 THE END?
The Death Cure is the third and final instalment in 20th Century Fox’s sci-fi movie franchise.
It follows The Maze Runner, which premiered in 2014 amid the popularity of fellow YA dystopian trilogy-based series The Hunger Games and Divergent, and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials in 2015.
The third movie in the series, based on Dashner’s The Death Cure, was originally intended to debut in 2017, but The Death Cure was delayed after star Dylan O’Brien was injured on set in early 2016.
For its part, The Death Cure wraps up the storylines of the franchise’s main characters.
Thomas (O’Brien) and Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) attempt to rescue their friend Minho (Ki Hong Lee) from the clutches of WCKD, where he’s being experimented on along with other teenaged Immunes – those who are immune to the Flare virus that turns humans into zombie-like Cranks.
Minho is only WCKD’s prisoner because Theresa (Kaya Scodelario) betrayed Thomas and their friends by telling WCKD’s leader Ava Page (Patricia Clarkson) and head of security Janson (Aidan Gillen) about their location after they had escaped.
Will There Be Maze Runner Part 4?
The Maze Runner 4 is not hitting the screens, and it looks like producers are not interested in expanding the movie any further.
The screenwriter of the movie T.S Nowlin once claimed that “The possibilities of a 4th movie happening are much lower,” and as a result, we cannot really make realistic guesses for The Maze Runner 4 to become a reality.
We have to face the reality, The Maze Runner 4 seems like it is not going to happen in the future.
We know that it seems harsh to accept the truth of the fans of the movie, but the chances of The Maze Runner 4’s return are small because when we look at the release tradition of the producers, you can see that it does not take more than 2 years for the upcoming movie to be released.
