In a new interview for his upcoming film, The Butler, Aml Ameen chatted about The Maze Runner and Alby’s part in The Glader family.
TM: Next year you’ll be in The Maze Runner, which seems to be Fox’s reply to the success of The Hunger Games. Do you think this has the potential to be a big tentpole franchise in the same vein as The Hunger Games?
AA: The Maze Runner is an edgy powerful adventure story. It’s only comparison to the successful Hunger Games is that it was once a book for a teen audience. But I think you’ll find it stands on its own as a great piece of cinema. The Maze Runner has an incredible cast of actors helmed by the brilliant Wes Ball, and we bring a real truth to this world. Each character has a story that affects the piece and I’m extremely proud of the film. I play Alby who is a father figure and brother to what essentially are a group of lost boys, The Gladers, and he keeps the order. I believe when people come out to see this film, they’ll come again and again, and this film is gonna draw people of all ages to the cinema.
Aml Ameen, who plays Alby in The Maze Runner movie couldn’t stop with just a tweet or instagram to voice out his love for his fellow cast members and fans, and we don’t mind at all. Here’s a little video as well!
Earlier today, many members of the cast of THE MAZE RUNNER as well as director Wes Ball, author James Dashner and producer Wyck Godfrey held their first official Twitter Chat. Here are a few of the (many) highlights.
Aml Ameen presented this character card of Alby, the leader of the Gladers in The Maze Runner, and boy does he look like a king!
