This past week J-14 had the chance to catch up with the cast of Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials as well as we got some exclusive images to show you all, which goes to show you we are very excited for you guys to see the film!
The film follows the character Thomas played by Dylan O' Brien as him and his fellow Gladers search for clues about the mysterious and powerful WCKED organization. Their adventure takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with obstacles on every turn that will have viewers on the edge of their seat throughout the whole film.
For author James Dashner, who created the book series from which the films are based on, being a part of the movie making process was amazing.
"It’s easily been the highlight of my career to be a part of the film process," said James to J-14. "I’ve always loved movies more than anything else, and I always tell people that for me, to have been involved with any film would’ve been an incredible experience. Then you add the fact that the story itself is based on my very own book and it’s almost too much awesomeness for me to handle."
James said he was inspired by a certain television series which he was watching at the time to create the books.
"Of all the things I’ve quoted over the years as having been inspirations, I think the TV show Lost was probably the biggest," he said. "I was completely caught up in the series while writing the first book of Maze Runner, and I think its influence is pretty obvious. Everything from the structure to the ongoing mysteries to the character interactions. Even the setting to some degree."
For Dylan O'Brien and Kaya Scodelario, they said fans will be blown away by the intense action sequences in the film.
"It was like rock climbing all day," said Kaya about the action sequences and how they prepared for them. "We were sliding down ramps, running...it was constant action all day!"
