Kaya Scodelario

Kaya Scodelario is certainly making the most of the opportunities afforded by the praise for her work on Skins and in films like Wuthering Heights and Moon. She’s been nabbing film roles big and small and now seems set for her first lead in a franchise. The Maze Runner’s director Wes Ball has let slip via Twitter that’s Scodelario’s scored the major role of Teresa in the movie. Kidulthood’s Aml Ameen is also aboard according to the tweet spotted by the Oh No They Didn’t site team.

The Maze Runner, adapted from James Dashner’s novel, is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a lad called Thomas wakes up in a lift with no memory save for his name. When the doors open, he’s deposited in a completely closed environment called the Glade. There he finds around 60 other teen boys who have been living off the land and supplies from a mysterious source, trying to escape from the enclosure for two years through a surrounding maze. Things change drastically though when a comatose girl arrives with a strange note. As for Theresa, she's Thomas' best friend, and the only female Glader.

So far, Will Poulter and Thomas Brodie Sangster are part of the cast, and Ball is set to kick off shooting this May for a February 2014 release. The question remains as to whether this will be the next big young adult breakout, but it’s certainly gathering a good cast.
