Fans of the hit novel The Maze Runner were delighted to learn that a big screen adaptation was being made. The Maze Runner movie stars Dylan O'Brien, who has spoken about the film, claiming that fans of the novel will be surprised by the movie.
O'Brien was chatting to the guys over at Collider, when he told them, "I think everything. I can’t say how the movie’s going to come out or anything but I think [director] Wes [Ball] is going to kill it. It’s really gritty, it’s a lot grittier than I think people are going to expect it to be."
He added, "What’s funny is that, in terms of subject matter, something like The Hunger Games is much more viciously violent than this story is but when you see the movies though, it’s interesting how — I think this is going to surprise people with how dirty and dark it is."
As well as starring Dylan O'Brien, The Maze Runner also stars Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The Maze Runner is directed by Wes Ball and will hit the big screen on February 14, 2014 in both the US and the UK.
