Dashner wrote a backstory to The Maze Runner called The Kill Order which came out in 2012.  


3. The film stars Dylan O'Brien *fangirl swoon*

4. It's a post-apocalyptic thriller

In a nutshell: main character Thomas wakes up in a strange place called the Glade which is surrounded by a maze. The only way out of this mysterious place is via the maze, which is full of hidden threats.
