THE MAZE RUNNER Cast Twitter Chat Recap

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.

“Could You survive in The Maze?”:

The Use of “Glade Lingo”:

Favorite, Hardest, Saddest and Most Difficult Scenes:

Bloopers and General Fun on the Set:

Some Other General Things About the Movie:

The chat officially wrapped with a Facebook video from the cast that you can watch below.

If you think that was a lot of Tweets, you won’t believe the full chat, which you can find on the Maze Runner Movie Twitter.

It was also mentioned a few times that James Dashner is headed to the set to film his cameo in the film tomorrow. Filming wraps on Friday. Producer Wyck Godfrey also made a point to say that THE MAZE RUNNER may still have some Comic Con presence besides James Dashner participating in the “What’s Behind the Door: Fiction that Thrills” panel on Sunday


THE MAZE RUNNER Cast To Be on Live Twitter Chat, Introduces Gally Character Card

Hey gladers!  Just found this on The Maze Runner Facebook page:



Yep, that’s Will Poulter as Gally in what they’re calling a character card.  Not sure how many character cards we’ll be getting, but I love this one and can’t wait to see the rest of them!  They will be holding a live twitter chat on July 8th, and you can submit your questions to the cast using the hashtag #MazeRunnerChat.  They have not listed who exactly will be participating in the chat, but we’ll let you know as soon as we find out!


THE MAZE RUNNER Actor Ki Hong Lee Gives Video Update


Not only does Ki Hong Lee (Minho) give us plenty o’ tweets, but he’s also posted this YouTube video along with his fellow glader, Will Poulter (Gally):

It seems that Will got a lot of firsts during his time with the Maze Runner cast, including a visit to a Waffle House  (I’ve done that!)

And apparently, the nickname for Thomas “TBS” Brodie-Sangster is Thomas “TBG” Brodie-Gangster.  I guess that’s a cool thing, though, because obviously our dear Thomas is not really a gangster.  He plays Newt, after all.

Plus, you gotta love Will for his “Pow!” moments.

So, what do you think of this video?  Can’t wait to see more?  Comment below!

And for added bonus, here’s the outtakes video:

The cast members like sunflower seeds:

Looks like it was a long, yet satisfying, day of filming for these two:

They’re not ones to waste food.

Too Much Information?

Director Wes Ball just tweeted that British actors Aml Ameen and Will Poulter have been cast for the roles of Alby and Gally respectively. Aml, 27, is best known for his roles as Trife in the movie Kidulthood and Malcolm in the TV series Harry’s Law. When asked about Aml’s age on twitter, Wes Ball responded with:

@christinaochoa Don’t worry, he plays much younger.

We reported last week that Will, 20, was offered a leading role. I don’t think any of us thought that he would end up playing Gally!

What do you think of these castings? Sound off in the comments! And keep checking back here for more casting information that will surely be breaking in the coming weeks.
