If you follow James Dashner on Twitter it is highly likely you’re familiar with his reoccurring live tweeting Q&A sessions he’s dubbed as “Dashner Chats.” In theses interviews the author randomly sets aside some time to answer fan questions and tease future projects to come. And last night, The Maze Runner author took to the interwebs to give us the latest update. We have a recap for you here!
‘Maze Runner’ Elements:
Dashner says there will most likely be no more Maze Runner books. He’s finished with the series and has other stories to tell.
He gives his full endorsement to The Maze Runner film and has been thrilled with the amount of input he’s been able to have.
Dashner said that the film is exactly what audiences will want out of an adaptation and he’s sure they will be blown away.
The author mentions that 20th Century Fox is planning on adapting each book in the series, but that good box office numbers will help encourage its completion.
Dashner says that it’s likely the Grievers won’t be revealed until later in the marketing campaign.
It’s unknown when the first trailer is being released, but something interesting should be ready in time for Comic Con.
He’s hoping to visit the set again sometime in June.
We get confirmation that there will be Glader slang in the movie, but Dashner insures that it’s used sparingly as to not overwhelm audiences.
Dashner mentions again how incredibly pleased he is with the casting choices for the movie and how happy he is that every character in the book will be in the film.
Once and for all: Minho is pronounced MIN-Hoe.
