Maze Runner: The Death Cure infamously became a troubled production following the serious injury of lead actor Dylan O’Brien during a stunt that went horribly wrong and a significant delay to the movie’s filming. Thankfully, O’Brien and the others have finished the film without much issue following his recovery, and one of his co-stars explains that the movie will offer a great send-off to these characters.
Kaya Scodelario, who portrays Teresa Agnes in all three of the Maze Runner movies, recently spoke to Screen Rant in an interview about where the story is headed in the final installment to the trilogy:
“We just wrapped filming [Maze Runner: The Death Cure]. And I think we are really saying a great goodbye to these characters and we are tying up all the loose ends. This is a rescue mission movie. They want to catch Minho. They are breaking into W.C.K.D and we are kind of trying to understand the decision Teresa did in the last movie. That she is not just a betrayer.”
That seems like quite a bit to resolve in one movie on top of everything else that the story needs to do, but it seems as though Twentieth Century Fox was wise to not split the young adult adaptation into two films, as that was a decision that backfired tremendously with Lionsgate’s Divergent series when the intended “Part One” adaptation of the last book flopped and has left an adaptation of “Part Two” in jeopardy. In any case, the Maze Runner franchise as a whole seems to have become something of a cult classic, and it’s possible that the final film in the series will bring the franchise’s total worldwide revenue in ticket sales to over a billion dollars.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure will arrive on February 9, 2018. The film’s cast includes Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Dexter Darden, Nathalie Emmanuel, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Walton Goggins, Ki Hong Lee, Jacob Lofland, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter, Rosa Salazar, and Patricia Clarkson.
