Game of Thrones’ Littlefinger himself, actor Aidan Gillen, is set play the villain in the upcoming sequel “Maze Runner: Scorch Trials” for 20th Century Fox, Temple Hill Entertainment and Gotham Group.
The just-announced sequel to last week’s global hit “The Maze Runner” will be based on the second book in James Dashner’s young adult novel trilogy and again directed by Wes Ball.
Following the events of the first film, the story picks up with the survivors now on the run on a solar flare-ravaged Earth that appears to be a wasteland.
Gillen will play Janson, the main antagonist of the book series who is also referred to as Rat-Man. Lead star Dylan O’Brien is also set to return.
Filming is slated to begin at the end of October.
