'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' UPDATE: Wes Ball To Helm Third And Last Installment Of James Dashner's Young Adult Novel Plus Check Out Reviews Of 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'

"Maze Runner: The Death Cure" has updated fans that Wes Ball will helm the third and last installment of James Dashner's young adult novel. The news came after the heels of "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" debuted at cinemas this weekend.

Fox has chosen Wes Ball to direct the "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" after leaving to his masterful hands the first two installments of the "Maze Runner" trilogy. Ball confirmed to Variety that he was returning for the third part of James Dashner's young adult novel. He said, "Ultimately our goal is to create an awesome three-movie trilogy. I am directing the third film and we've already been busy preparing and working on the final conclusion of this saga."

However, "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" will not follow the trend that "Harry Potter" franchise set. The third installment will not be split into two parts but rather will be the third and last of the "Maze Runner" franchise. Ball stated that his intention for the movie was to always "do justice" to James Dashner young adult novel from beginning to end.

Wes Ball continued: "We are setting up a lot of things that aren't necessarily apparent in the second movie, but it will pay off big time in the third movie."

The book summary for "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" was detailed by Slash Film and it included that it's the end of the line for the Gladers. WICKED has taken Thomas' life, memories and his buddies; what they didn't know was that he remembered much more than what they thought and, this time, the lies will be uncovered as Thomas survived the Scorch and the only thing that will save everyone he loved will be the truth.

Meanwhile,vSeattle Pi described the freshly debuted "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" as a zombie movie cum dystopian drama for young adults. There's zombies, a resistance group, wastelands, harsh weather and a sinister government that thinks it's alright to kill kids. To sum up, "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials was a "predictable movie that doesn't try anything new, but made well enough to be enjoyable entertainment for all age groups."

IGN added that "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" was an improvement from the first movie but still draws comparison to "Divergent" and "The Hunger Games."

"Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" is currently showing in cinemas near you.
