Dashner Chat Recap

James Dashner just finished his monthly Twitter Q & A session. The chat was very movie centered because of all of the recent castings as well as the fact that James was on the set in Baton Rouge talking to director Wes Ball as well as producer Wyck Godfrey earlier today. If you weren’t following along all hour, here are a few of the highlights.

I say this with complete, total, 100% honesty: I think our cast for this film is perfect. #dashnerchat

Final comment on the movie. Wes Ball is supernaturally gifted and visionary. We are all very lucky to have him in charge. #dashnerchat

James has mentioned things similar to this on multiple other occasions and it really seems that this movie is in good hands!

Also: At dinner I used the word “if” about the other movies and got in trouble. I was corrected. “when”. Boom. #dashnerchat

As it has been said on numerous occasions, the people who are making this movie are in love with the source material and their passion for this project is a really good sign as to what we can expect as a final product, including the future addaptions of ‘The Scorch Trials’ and ‘The Death Cure’.

In case you missed it, director Wes Ball has promised that I will have a cameo in the movie. #nextbradpitt#dashnerchat
