“Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” is only a couple of months away from hitting theaters worldwide. While fans are still waiting for the release of the teaser trailer of the sequel, author James Dashner hinted that a part of his third book, “The Death Cure” will be shown in the second movie. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“The Maze Runner” series has now become one of the highly anticipated book-based movies to hit the theatres following the release of “The Twilight Saga,” “Harry Potter” series and “The Hunger Games.” Now that the series is up for its second movie based on Dashner’s second book titled, “The Scorch Trials,” fans were wondering if the movie will have some changes similar to the ones they did in the first film.
“We really tried hard to stay true to the spirit and tone of the book and keep some of the major scenes, but we had a little bit more of an increase in changes between book and movie,” Dashner told Radio Times.
The author also revealed that the changes that were made from the first “Maze Runner” film definitely had a ripple effect on “The Scorch Trials.” Dashner cited that Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) will still be unable to communicate telepathically following the changes made in the first installment. Dashner noted though that there will be a change in Teresa’s location throughout the movie, which will help bring about the true spirit of the book.
Dashner also revealed that a part of his third book, “The Death Cure” will be shown in “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.” According to the author, this move will help them re-align with the storyline from the books.
Meanwhile, Dylan O’Brien recently hinted to MTV that they will be bringing a lot of “insane” scenes from the book into the big screen. The 23-year-old actor also likened the second installment to the “The Maze Runner” franchise to the AMC series, “The Walking Dead.”
“Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” premieres on Sept. 18, 2015.
