Hollywood isn't done with its young adult trend. Another YA adaptation is coming to a theater near you, and it's called The Maze Runner. Unlike The Hunger Games or Divergent, its story follows a group of isolated teenage boys. The protagonist is played by Teen Wolf star Dylan O'Brien, who's at the center of a conspiracy.

Official synopsis:

When Thomas wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. Based upon the best-selling novel by James Dashner.

The rest of the cast includes Will Poulter (We're the Millers) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones). The Maze Runner opens in theaters Sept. 19.
