THE MAZE RUNNER Cast Twitter Chat Recap

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
