Wes Ball, director of the previous installment in The Maze Runner series, has helmed The Scorch Trials as well.
The plot of the film is described as follows:
“Thomas (O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.”
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials will hit theaters on September 18, 2015.
