Dylan O’Brien’s vacation from Beacon Hills has been anything but restful. The “Teen Wolf” star (who plays Stiles on the MTV series) has been hard at work filming the upcoming dystopian drama “The Maze Runner.”
Based on the young-adult novel by James Dashner, “The Maze Runner” centers around teen Thomas (O’Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is. What he does come to find out is that he’s been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all the while establishing a functioning society within the enclosure they’ve come to call “The Glade.”
With production on “The Maze Runner” still in full swing, MTV News was lucky enough to get its hands on five exclusive first-look stills from the film, featuring O’Brien and his young co-stars, including Kaya Scodelario and Aml Ameen. From an image of a visibly injured Thomas, to a gang of boys running to the supposed safety of the sky-scraping structure, the tenor of these images is clear: danger lurks around every corner.

The cast (including O’Brien and Scodelario), along with director Wes Ball and author Dashner, will be hosting a Twitter chat on Monday, July 8 to answer fan questions.
