Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
TWILIGHT director Catherine Hardwicke is in the beginning stages of negotiations to direct the film THE MAZE RUNNER which is based on a book by James Dashner. THE MAZE RUNNER is the first in a trilogy of books about a boy who wakes up in an elevator and is deposited into a place with other boys his age that is surrounded by an inescapable maze. When a girl is finally dropped off into the holding area with a strange note, things start to change and get interesting. Apparently the trilogy is popular in the 6-10 age range and since TWILIGHT director Catherine Harkwicke is an expert at adapting books to screen (debatable, we know) who better to start us off on the inevitable franchise.
Catherine Hardwicke is getting ready to release her next film RED RIDING HOOD, starring the popular Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman, which will open in theaters on March 11, 2011.
