The Maze Runner film has already made over $100 million at the domestic box office, and with a budget of $34million; there was no doubt it would garner a sequel. The second book in the series, The Scorch Trials, will most likely begin filming soon and we’re happy to announce Aiden Gillen will be joining the cast as the main villain.

Gillen is most known for playing ‘Littlefinger’ on HBO’s Game of Thrones and will play an insidious character known as Rat-Man in the Maze Runner sequel. I didn’t read the book, so I’m not sure what havoc he will be ensuing on the main characters, but you can read more about the book on the wiki page.

Thomas and the rest of the group’s escape from the Maze and the horrifying creatures called Grievers has proven to be short-lived because WICKED, the group behind it all, has another trial in store for them. Sun flares have destroyed most of the Earth, and a virus called the Flare has ravaged its population. Infected people turn into zombies called Cranks that attack and eat one other. The kids are told that they have the Flare but if they succeed in surviving the second trial, they will be cured.
